8 July–6 August 2016
The Modern Art Museum Gebre Kristos Desta Center, in collaboration with the United States Embassy, presents a solo exhibition by Julie Mehretu, titled ‘The Addis Show’. The exhibition features 17 of Mehretu’s paintings, ranging from her earliest to her most recent works. This exhibition marks the first time that Mehretu shows her work in Ethiopia, where she was born and raised until the age of seven.
A programme of events will accompany the exhibition, including a daylong symposium featuring artists, architects, curators and art historians at Addis Ababa and Bahir Dar Universities. Full details will be published here.
