The first comprehensive survey of Julie Mehretu’s work covers more than 20 years of the Ethiopian-born artist’s career in a traveling exhibition organized by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and the Whitney Museum of American Art. Through around 70 drawings, prints, and paintings, Mehretu’s vast compilation of influences—like Chinese calligraphy, maps, cave markings, graffiti, and photojournalism—reveals the artist’s fascination with the shaping of human consciousness through material that addresses history and its relation to the present. Highlights to look out for include the monumental Mogamma (A Painting in Four Parts) works, which have been reunited for the first time since their last showing, as well as Mehretu’s most recent work, surrounding the migrant children being held in U.S. detention camps.
