Product Details

Praise

“This artist’s imperative midcareer retrospective…comes with a rich catalog that captures her paintings’ stuttering intensity and discloses her abstracted source material (wildfires, riots). Ms. Mehretu’s early, architectonic paintings came at a high-water mark for globalization; her recent art, more anxious and more impressive, features thrumming, multilayered fields of color and ricky-tick calligraphic swoops that seethe with the contemporary volatility of states and climates. The book is dedicated to the pioneering Nigerian curator Okwui Enwezor, who died before he could complete his contribution, but whose global engagement animates many of its other essays.” —Jason Farago, The New York Times

“A long time coming, Julie Mehretu compiles for the first time a comprehensive overview of the artist’s expansive and evolving body of work made from 1996 to the present. —Culture Type
