The Museum of Drawing presents The Panik Collective opening reception
The Museum of Drawing inaugurates their new location with the Panik Collective, a team of credentialed painters, sculptors, musicians, mathematicians, and curators dividing time among multiple exhibition projects and public actions, as designated on their website. The MOD’s mission of drawing coming to life is precisely directed towards action. Their attention to the Panik Collective started with their Black Lives Matter decal that was discovered while trying to find material to document the 2016 elections. The decal’s “hidden” background message has a drawn high school hand gesture simplifying the social issue of why this decal is even relevant or created in today’s political culture. This is drawing coming to life, this is drawing coming to action and nothing else could best state an inauguration of The MOD than this timely exhibition curated by La Luz de Jesus Gallery (Los Angeles, CA) director, Matt Kennedy.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through August 31.
