58 years after these groundbreaking Pop Artists were first exhibited side-by-side in Houston (at the Contemporary Arts Museum's 1963 exhibit "Pop Goes the Easel"), the Menil Drawing Institute is bringing them back together for "Draw Like A Machine: Pop Art 1952-1975" - October 29, 2021-March 13, 2022.
Karen Chernick writes about the interest in the work of women Pop Artists since the Seductive Subversion exhibit (2010). But, while recognition is long overdue and some Museums are acquiring pieces, there is still an enormous gulf between them and the male artists, from whose narrative they were excluded.

One of the few women involved in the Pop Art movement, she captured the anonymity of corporate life in silhouettes. She later turned to realism.

Figure as Form examines the different ways that modern and contemporary artists have used the human form as a compositional device rather than a naturalistic portrayal. The show will include Idelle Weber's Blocked - 1965 (pictured).
