    Interview with Julie Mehretu / Julie Mehretu: Grey Area, Deutsche Guggenheim Berlin / part 2/2
    Interview with Julie Mehretu / Julie Mehretu: Grey Area, Deutsche Guggenheim Berlin / part 2/2, The current exhibition Julie Mehretu: Grey Area at the Deutsche Guggenheim in Berlin is dedicated to the American artist Julie Mehretu. Julie Mehretu has been asked to realize a work for the Deutsche Guggenheim's series of commissions that started in 1998 with James Rosenquist. The works of the suite of paintings she created for this project are of identical size and inspired by the city she has been working in during the process of their creation: Berlin.- [Heinrich Schmidt]
