Julie Mehretu co-organized by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and The Whitney Museum of American Art is painter and queer woman Julie Mehretu’s mid-career survey. It unite nearly 40 works on paper with 35 paintings dating from 1996 to the present by Julie Mehretu (b. 1970, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia). The first-ever comprehensive retrospective of Mehretu’s career covers over two decades of her examination of history, colonialism, capitalism, geopolitics, war, global uprising, diaspora, and displacement through the artistic strategies of abstraction, architecture, landscape, movement, and, most recently, figuration. Post-Covid 19 the exhibition will hopefully tour the US.
