Guggenheim's "Grey Area"

Julie Mehretu is gorgeous, and not yet forty. She is a gay Ethiopian Midwesterner who went to school in Senegal and Rhode Island, got famous in New York City and now practices in Berlin. As such, she is the over-achiever of Post-postmodernism if ever there was one. Her art, like her biography, is uncategorizable.

Read more in KiptonART Magazine about Julie Mehretu's current exhibition, "Grey Area" up now at the Guggenheim New York.
