Deen Sharp in Artscope Magazine

Terreform co-director, Deen Sharp, was featured in Artscope Magazine May/June 2019 issue: “Making Connections with Julie Mehretu”.

….Sharp made the opening remarks and introduced the panel. Each panelist was tasked with responding to Mehretu’s two artworks inspired by the Arab Spring: “Mogamma,” a huge four-piece work produced during the early days of the Tahrir uprising that forced Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak to step down and “Epigraph, Damascus,” a six-panel reaction to the Syrian Revolution in its fourth year of mortal struggle against the ruthless regime of Bashar al-Assad. Sharp’s talk “Marking Moments: The Actually Existing Third Space of Julie Mehretu” traced the progression of Mehretu’s work in “Mogamma,” “Cairo” and “Damascus, Epigraph.” He outlined how her marks documenting the uprisings shifted to marks making meaning out of the social chaos. “Mehretu … illuminates how we can see outwards by looking within; how tensions, contradictions and difference can exist together; how absences can create the most powerful presence; how the smallest mark can be the deepest,” said Sharp >> PDF

Thread on some number of books, events and people Deen turned for his introduction.


Early on in the process of putting together  Beyond the Square , Deen had approached Julie Mehretu about including her work on Egypt–specifically,  Mogamma (A Painting in Four Parts)  (2012) and  Cairo  (2013). Asking her felt like a long shot so we were both over the moon when she agreed to be involved.  (Co-editor Claire Panetta in Jadaliyya) .
