The 2019 CAA Distinguished Artist Interviews—which are free and open to the public—will feature Julie Mehretu interviewed by Julia Bryan-Wilson and Guadalupe Maravilla interviewed by Sheila Maldonado.
Julie Mehretu is a world-renowned painter, born in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, who lives and works in New York City and Berlin. Her major traveling mid-career survey was just announced; the exhibition will bring her large-scale paintings and intimate drawings and prints to LACMA in November 2019, and travel to the Whitney Museum, the High Museum of Art, and the Walker Art Center.
Guadalupe Maravilla (formally Irvin Morazan) is a multidisciplinary artist who creates and choreographs fictionalized rituals that incorporate his pre-colonial ancestry, fiction, and autobiography. His collaborative work with undocumented immigrants was recently on view in Pacha, Llaqta, Wasichay: Indigenous Space, Modern Architecture, New Art, the first group show to exclusively feature Latinx emerging artists at the Whitney Museum.
The Distinguished Artist Interviews will take place Friday, February 15, 2019, 3:30-5:30 PM. They are free and open to the public.
