Featuring over a hundred pieces spanning a twenty-five-year career — the first time all seven floors of the New Museum were dedicated to one artist — Intertwined will be remembered as an epoch-defining exhibition. Other commentators have already remarked on the importance of the exhibition as a confirmation of Mutu’s prominent role in the contemporary art scene. Her audacious competence and relentless determination to craft a new aesthetic language are key to her aesthetic and conceptual success. Floor after floor, Intertwined unfolds in a skilful conceptual crescendo. It never gets tired or dull. The experience is breathtaking; both enlightening and intense. Shows like this are truly rare.
