Gallery artist Idelle Weber's work Uptown Men (1962) will be included in the group exhibition Draw Like a Machine: Pop Art, 1952-1975 at The Menil Collection. Draw Like a Machine: Pop Art, 1952-1975 explores the innovative methods of draftsmanship pioneered by the leading practitioners associated with American Pop, one of the most significant art movements of the 20th century. During this time, artists experimented with images and processes borrowed from advertising and mass media to produce drawings that combine flawless technical polish with the handmade flourishes familiar to the medium. This exhibition brings together works that upend the traditionally assumed connection drawing has to the hand of the artist.
Draw Like a Machine is curated by Kelly Montana, Assistant Curator, Menil Drawing Institute.
