Valkyrie Mumbet Upcoming
Renowned Portuguese artist Joana Vasconcelos will premiere a new monumental site-specific installation. Known for her unprecedented multimedia works, Vasconcelos, in her first U.S. solo show, will honor Elizabeth “Mumbet” Freeman, an enslaved woman whose legal battle for her freedom in 1781 helped end slavery in Massachusetts. The large-scale installation, entitled Valkyrie Mumbet, is the newest in her Valkyries series, named after Norse female war goddesses, that pay homage to inspiring women.
