Spaces of power, Julie Mehretu


Liminal Squared is Julie Mehretu's new exhibition at White Cube
I think architecture reflects the machinations of politics, and that's why I am interested in it as a metaphor for those institutions. I don't think of architectural language as just a metaphor about space, but about spaces of power, about ideas of power.
