Whitney Teens x Artists:
Julie Mehretu

Tues, Apr 20, 2021
4 pm

Online, via Zoom

High school students, grades 9–12.

Join Youth Insights Leaders as they talk with artists whose work is currently on view at the Whitney. Teens will ask the artist about their process and inspirations, and the artist will share what it is like to make art today and advice they might have for young artists. Participating teens are invited to add their own perspective to the conversation by sharing their thoughts via chat.   

Join YI Leaders as they speak with artist Julie Mehretu about the exhibition Julie Mehretu currently on view at the Whitney. The exhibition is a mid-career survey that covers more than two decades of the artist’s examination of painting, history, geopolitics, and displacement. Including approximately thirty paintings and forty works on paper dating from 1996 to today, the exhibition presents the most comprehensive overview to date of Mehretu’s practice and her explorations of abstraction, architecture, landscape, scale, and, most recently, figuration.

Free with registration.
