Julie Mehretu Ensemble

The fascinating world of Julie Mehretu can be visited at Palazzo Grassi’s monumental exhibition, “Julie Mehretu.Ensemble”, featuring the largest collection of the artist’s works ever displayed in Europe.

Curated by Caroline Bourgeois and the artist herself, this groundbreaking exhibition showcases over fifty paintings and prints spanning Mehretu’s illustrious twenty-five-year career, alongside recent creations produced between 2021 and 2023. Open to the public until January 6, 2025, this transformative showcase unfolds across the two floors of Palazzo Grassi, presenting a mesmerizing array of artworks from the Pinault Collection, international museums, private collections, and the artist’s personal archive.

Mehretu’s practice, deeply rooted in abstraction, is a testament to her exploration of art history, geography, social struggles, and revolutionary movements. The exhibition is characterized by the layering and interplay of Mehretu’s works, reflecting the complexity of her artistic vision and the ongoing evolution of her practice.

“Julie Mehretu.Ensemble” is further enriched by the inclusion of works by artist friends such as Nairy Baghramian, Huma Bhabha, Tacita Dean, David Hammons, Robin Coste Lewis, Paul Pfeiffer, and Jessica Rankin. Presented in a non-chronological manner, the exhibition allows visitors to delve into Mehretu’s artistic journey and gain insight into the origins of her work.

Organized in collaboration with K21—Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen (Düsseldorf), the exhibition will be followed by a new version of the project dedicated entirely to Julie Mehretu in 2025. Additionally, a series of conferences and cultural events held at the Teatrino of Palazzo Grassi offer further exploration of the exhibition’s themes and protagonists, providing a comprehensive experience for visitors. Don’t miss this extraordinary opportunity to immerse yourself in the groundbreaking work of Julie Mehretu.
