Deutsche Bank presents Wangechi Mutu, Artist of the Year 2010, at WIELS, Brussels

June 25 to September 12, 2010 │ Artspace WIELS │ Brussels

Deutsche Bank’s Artist of the Year 2010 Wangechi Mutu created a spectacular installation with My Dirty Little Heaven. After its premiere at the Deutsche Guggenheim, her exhibit now travels to Brussels.

WIELS, the most important forum for international contemporary art in Brussels, is an ideal platform for My Dirty Little Heaven, as Wangechi Mutu’s work is dedicated to internationality, diversity, and the linking of artistic questions with social concerns—themes that also play a pivotal role in Deutsche Bank’s commitment to art. Furthermore, the exhibition will be on view during the commemoration of 50 Years of Independence of 17 African States and the Belgian Presidency of the EU.

Unlike other awards, Artist of the Year is not connected with a money prize, but is firmly anchored in Deutsche Bank’s art program, with which the bank has created worldwide access to contemporary art for 30 years. The highlight of the program each year is a solo exhibition of the Artist of the Year at the Deutsche Guggenheim in Berlin and at other venues such as WIELS. Furthermore, the bank acquires a selection of works on paper by the artist for its collection. In the case of Wangechi Mutu, the acquired works will be on view on an entire floor of Deutsche Bank’s modernized headquarters starting at the end of 2010.
