Julie Mehretu's HOWL, eon (I, II), 2017 officially opens tomorrow! Come through our 3rd St. entrance to experience these works in person, free of charge. Thank you to #JulieMehretu for her insight during this week's #SFMOMAtakeover 👏

When Mehretu saw the works installed at SFMOMA for the first time, she felt overwhelmed. “I’m trying to make sense of them because of course they don’t look like they did in my studio. I want to do a little bit more on one of the pieces because the dynamic of the paintings and the columns has changed." And Mehretu did exactly that. To the delight and awe of visitors in the atrium on Monday afternoon, she began painting and editing, a process she calls “massaging them into place." Swipe right to see it in action. #SFMOMAtakeover #JulieMehretu

We weren't joking about those three scissor lifts 😲 #SFMOMAtakeover #JulieMehretu

These are the largest paintings SFMOMA has ever installed! It took an installation team 2 weeks to complete. First, the canvases were carefully uncrated, then slowly lifted, and finally stapled along the top before being unrolled with the help of three scissor lifts. #SFMOMAtakeover #JulieMehretu

HOWL, eon (I,II), 2017 remained unnamed for months. Deep down, Mehretu knew exactly what she wanted. “I didn’t want a long name. It’s such a difficult thing, trying to name a work. You want it to be suggestive but you don’t want it to be defined. I was sitting with a friend at breakfast in Barcelona and I thought to myself, what are these paintings doing in this landscape? Then the word Howl appeared. I immediately thought of Allen Ginsberg’s poem, Howl. I had also been researching geological terms and aspects of time, so the word eon came next. It became this idea of reverberation. These elliptical cycles of time.”-JM #SFMOMAtakeover #JulieMehretu

Mehretu's works began with a composite of digitally blurred images printed on canvas. After the surfaces were delivered to her studio, she really started looking. "I got into the studio the first week of October and spent the entire month sitting, looking, and learning. It was really a process of understanding the terrain of these. I wanted to start painting, but I couldn't. Then the election happened and it was so intense, I started painting the next day.”-JM #SFMOMAtakeover #JulieMehretu

With two canvases that measure 27 x 32, Mehretu was in need of a (roomy) nontraditional studio. Her search led to a deconsecrated Harlem church. “I’ve lived in Harlem for years, so the comfort and peace of mind from my surroundings definitely helped my mindset. I never needed to travel from somewhere unfamiliar.”-JM
