The museum is the first institution to acquire and display Kenyan multimedia artist Jim Chuchu’s mesmerizing suite of video projections, Invocation: The Severance of Ties (2015) and Invocation: Release (2015). Curated by Karen E. Milbourne, the two distinct videos loop in succession and follow the structure of initiation rituals.
