Ask A Curator: Julie Mehretu

Rujeko Hockley, assistant curator, provides a overview of Julie Mehretu’s expansive midcareer survey at the Whitney. Multi-layered and multi-referential, Mehretu’s work draws on abstraction, architecture, landscape, and contemporary geopolitics. In its resistance to simple interpretations, her art encourages a nuanced reckoning with the true complexity of our histories and identities. After the overview, Adrienne Edwards, Engell Speyer Family Curator and Curator of Performance, joins Hockley for discussion and audience Q&A.
