JULIE MEHRETU 'Stadia Excerpt (a small resurgence)', 2004

"Mehretu's works are truly representative of our time. Within them there's a high degree of order, linearity and control but at the same time a tremendous amount of chaos - a sense of a lack of center, a lack of beginning or end. A mirror held up toward contemporary culture." Contemporary Art specialist Benjamin Godsill discusses Mehretu's 'Stadia Excerpt (a small resurgence)', 2004 from our 13 November Evening Sale.
