- One of the two paintings at the Whitney Biennial,
Empirical Construction: Istanbul, is one of her largest to
date: a 10-by-15-foot tour de force that blends fragmentary views
of Istanbul’s Old City with geometric forms. It’s also, says Mehretu—who’s
lived in Addis Ababa, Dakar, and Kalamazoo—“the only painting I’ve
made so far based on one particular city."

The painting was acquired by the Museum of Modern Art, NY. Now in
