Julie Mehretu, Mid-Career Survey LACMA
In light of recent developments concerning the coronavirus (COVID-19), events, exhibitions and talks are subject to change. Please follow ArtNews for updates.
Co-organized by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and The Whitney Museum of American Art, "Julie Mehretu" is a mid-career survey that will unite approximately 30 paintings with 32 works on paper dating from 1996 to the present.
The first-ever comprehensive retrospective of Mehretu’s career, it 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. Mehretu’s play with scale, as evident in her intimate drawings and large canvases and complex techniques in printmaking, will be explored in depth.
