Art History From Home: Julie Mehretu
This series of online talks by the Whitney’s Joan Tisch Teaching Fellows highlights works in the Museum's collection and current exhibitions to illuminate critical topics in American art from 1900 to the present. During each thirty-minute session, participants are invited to comment and ask questions through a moderated chat. Sessions are available live only, Tuesdays at 6pm and Thursdays at 12pm, but topics and speakers do periodically repeat. Check whitney.org for more sessions added regularly.

Join us to learn more about the work of Julie Mehretu whose paintings combine maps, architectural drawing, landscape, and current events into large-scale abstractions, layering manipulated digital images, graphic shapes, and dynamic gestures of color. Born in Ethiopia and raised in the U.S., her mesmerizing, often immense paintings have for more than two decades explored global history, colonialism, climate crises, uprisings, and displacements, capturing both the interconnectedness and fragmentation that characterize contemporary life.

Xin Wang is a Joan Tisch Teaching Fellow at the Whitney and a Ph.D. candidate in modern and contemporary art at the Institute of Fine Arts, NYU. She is the curator of numerous exhibitions in the U.S., Europe, and Asia. Her latest writings have appeared in Art in America, Art Agenda, and Wallpaper (Chinese edition). She is currently planning an exhibition that explores Asian Futurisms for the Museum of Chinese in America in New York City.
