Published on the occasion of Julie Mehretu’s solo exhibitions at Marian Goodman Gallery, New York (May – June 2013) and White Cube Bermondsey, London (May – July 2013).

With large colour plates, full-bleed details and four gatefold pages, this publication provides an exacting and thorough overview of Mehretu’s intricate use of painterly surface. Featuring paintings created across the joint exhibitions, the publication places emphasis on the artist’s negotiation of political demonstration, architectural language and geographical space. A text by Tacita Dean reflects on Mehretu’s personal history and experience of displacement, while an extended essay by TJ Demos considers the artist’s exploration of ‘geoaesthetics’, situating the work with reference to the expressivity of abstraction and bodily gesture.
