The Menil Collection presents "Draw Like a Machine: Pop Art, 1952–1975" opening day
The Menil Collection will present "Draw Like a Machine: Pop Art, 1952–1975," an exhibition that features over 30 drawings that upend the traditionally assumed connection that drawing has to the hand of
the artist. Featuring works primarily sourced from the Menil’s permanent collection, along with select loans from local Houston collections, "Draw Like a Machine" will focus on drawings made during a time when gestural and expressionistic mark-making was considered increasingly outmoded, and artists were actively experimenting with images and processes borrowed from advertising and mass media. The resulting artworks bridge the seeming contradiction between the manual and the mechanical.
Following the opening day, the exhibit will be on display until March 13, 2022.
