Julie Mehretu: The Addis Show

The mesmerizing abstract painter is displaying her work for the first time in her native Ethiopia

Seventeen of abstract painter Julie Mehretu's paintings will be on display at Julie Mehretu: The Addis Show, from July 8, 2016 to August 6, 2016. The exhibition is given by The Modern Art Museum Gebre Kristos Desta Center in collaboration with the United States Embassy, and displays a wide range of the artist's work, from her earliest paintings to more recent pieces.

The exhibit is particularly exciting since Mehretu will exhibit her work in Ethiopia, where she was born and raised until she was 7.

The exhibition will be on view at The Modern Art Museum Gebre Kristos Desta Center in Ethiopia through August 6th.
