WALTER ANNENBERG LECTURE
JULIE MEHRETU

Tuesday, April 6
6 pm

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 virtual Walter Annenberg Lecture, Mehretu speaks about her practice with Adam D. Weinberg, the Museum’s Alice Pratt Brown Director.
