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.

This event is free but registration is required.
