Julie Mehretu and Gabriel Orozco are among 46 artists born or practicing in the United States featured in ‘Come as You Are: Art of the 1990s’, a major museum exhibition examining the art of the 1990s in its historical context.
Works include Gabriel Orozco My Hands Are My Heart (1991), a silver dye bleach diptych of the artist moulding clay against his chest and Julie Mehretu Untitled (2000), a composition of urban renderings and dynamic gestural marks formed from ink, coloured pencil and cut paper.
The exhibition focuses on three principal themes at the forefront of public consciousness in the 1990s: debates over identity politics, the digital revolution and globalisation. The exhibition also looks at changes to and influences on contemporary US art practice throughout the decade.
