Julie Mehretu, co-organized by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) and the Whitney Museum of American Art, is the artist’s first comprehensive survey exhibition featuring her meticulously crafted paintings, drawings, and prints. Including early work influenced by the notion of cities as sociopolitical constructs; complex paintings built up in layers of colors, lines, brushstrokes, and architectural renderings; and Mehretu’s recent predominantly abstract, gestural work, the exhibition reveals the evolution of her work and its proximity to abstraction over the past two decades.
