Julie Mehretu is a painter and a 2005 McArthur Award winner. Born in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia in 1970, Mehretu draws inspiration from numerous sources including social and political events and historical painting. Through the energetic tensions of a world spinning out of control, Mehretu also reveals a nostalgic impulse of utopian longing for a past that never was and a future of positive social agency.

Supported by the Chelsea River Gallery.
