Walter Annenberg Lecture: Julie Mehretu

Tues, Apr 6, 2021
6 pm

Online, via Zoom

Since the mid-1990s, Julie Mehretu's work has examined painting, history, geopolitics, and displacement. In her paintings and works on paper, she deploys abstraction, architecture, landscape, scale, and, most recently, figuration. For this Walter Annenberg Lecture, Mehretu speaks about her practice with Adam D. Weinberg, the Museum’s Alice Pratt Brown Director.

In honor of the late Walter H. Annenberg, philanthropist, patron of the arts, and former ambassador, the Whitney Museum of American Art established the Walter Annenberg Annual Lecture to advance this country's understanding of its art and culture. Support for this lecture and for public programs at the Whitney Museum is provided, in part, by Gregory Annenberg Weingarten, GRoW @ Annenberg; the Stavros Niarchos Foundation; the Barker Welfare Foundation; and by members of the Whitney's Education Committee.
