26 April 2016
Julie Mehretu has been selected by the Skowhegan School of Painting & Sculpture to receive the annual Skowhegan Medal for Painting.
On the announcement, the Skowhegan said: ‘celebrated internationally for large-scale, gestural paintings, the Ethiopian-born artist addresses both the formal concerns of color and line and the social concerns of power, history, globalism and personal narrative’.
The honour will be awarded at the Skowhegan 70th Anniversary Celebration & Awards Dinner on 26 April 2016. Details of the selection committee, honourees and celebration tickets can be found here.
