Julie Mehretu: “Mogamma, A Painting in Four Parts, Part Three”. Mehretu is an Ethiopian-born artist, working in the USA, whose work just blows us away. Wise, political, and delicate, her art explores ideas of oppression and resistance. This piece, named for a government building in Cairo, on Tahrir Square, a famous site of recent protests and riots, combines that structure’s architectural drawings with those of places in other cities — such as New York’s Zuccotti Park, where Occupy bloomed. Mehretu creates a sense of all these struggles, rebellions and fights for freedom overlapping: hers is an intersectional art. She is a queer woman of colour who deserves far more space in our canon.
