Julie Mehretu & Jessica Rankin
10/04/2016 - 12/06/2016
This spring we bring together the work of two artists who live and work in New York. In their work, both Julie Mehretu (b.1970) and Jessica Rankin (b.1971) play with the boundaries of abstract art and the momentum that occurs when lines, colours and surfaces come to depict, once again, a reality or an experience. While Mehretu primarily uses the metropolitan dynamic, Rankin reworks, among others, the typical compositions of geographical and astronomical maps into lively organisms. Both artists also play with different materials and various forms of composition and texture, which leads to very different outcomes.
