Julie Mehretu at SFMOMA

Sept. 2, 2017 - Ongoing

Julie Mehretu’s HOWL, eon (I, II) (2017) is an expansive exploration of the American West — its transcendent landscapes and violent colonial history. Created as part of SFMOMA’s new art commissioning program, this site-specific diptych’s two vast abstract canvases flank the main staircase in the soaring Haas, Jr. Atrium, which is freely accessible to the public.

An artist talk will take place on September 14 at 6:30pm between Mehretu and  Gary Garrels, Elise S. Haas Senior Curator of Painting and Sculpture, about this large-scale commission.
