Wangechi Mutu Exhibition
Designed for the Wangechi Mutu exhibition at the MCA. The Kenyan-born, Brooklyn–based artist artwork explores themes such as colonialism, race and gender. The publication was designed to compliment the artist's aesthetic by mixing together materials such as the box-board cover, gold foil and contrasting uncoated and silk stocks. The dust jacket adds to the effect and the die cut end papers reflect one of Mutu's installations – where light shines through bullet holes shot into a wall.

A pack of limited edition playing cards was made featuring Mutu's collages as well as a poster and postcard set.
