About the Artist
Born in Ethiopia, Julie Mehretu lives and works in New York City. She was an artist-in-residence with the Glassell School’s Core Program from 1997 to 1999. Her work—informed by a multitude of sources including politics, literature, and music—is layered with gestural marks and architectural, geographical, and historical symbols. Fragment, created in Berlin, echoes the city’s troubled past and is on view in the Border, Mapping, Witness installation on the third floor of the Kinder Building.”
