Save the Date for Evening with Julie Mehretu

Mark your calendar and plan to join us during the 35th Annual Geography Awareness Week (November 14-19, 2022) for an engaging conversation with Julie Mehretu. Mehretu is an internationally acclaimed artist whose paintings, drawings and prints have appeared in numerous solo and group exhibitions. In her work, Mehretu creates new narratives using abstracted and blurred images of cities, histories, geographies, wars, political upheaval and social unrest, with a frenetic mark-making that becomes a way of signifying social agency as well as suggesting an unraveling of a personal and collective biography. Mehretu lives and works in New York City and is the recipient of The MacArthur Award (2005) and the US Department of State Medal of Arts Award (2015). Stay tuned for more details about this special event.
