Julie Mehretu is a mid-career survey that brings together nearly 40 works on paper and 35 paintings dating from 1996 to the present by Julie Mehretu. Co-organized by The Whitney Museum of American Art and The Los Angeles County Museum of Art, this retrospective of Mehretu’s career covers over two decades of her work that examines history, colonialism, capitalism, geopolitics, war, global uprising, diaspora, and displacement through the artistic strategies of abstraction, architecture, landscape, movement, and, most recently, figuration.
“The Warhol Foundation aims to support the full range of artistic activity in America—from exhibitions at major museums to neighborhood projects by artist collectives. Arts writers, through the range and specialization of their individual interests, touch upon all of this activity—illuminating and interrogating it and bringing it into conversation with the public. Support for artists is not complete without support for the circulation and serious consideration of their ideas. The Arts Writers Grant program keeps artists at the center of cultural dialogue and debate—in our opinion, right where they belong.”
