On November 18, 1963, the Albright-Knox hosted a Members’ Preview for Mixed Media and Pop Art. The exhibition was divided into three sections: mixed media, works by Jasper Johns and Robert Rauschenberg, and Pop Art. Although part of the Pop movement, Johns and Rauschenberg were already seen as something apart and earlier from the group that was following. An illustrated catalogue was produced to accompany the exhibition.
Rosalyn Drexler’s Home Movies, 1963, was on view as part of Mixed Media and Pop Art in 1963, and it will again be on display when Rosalyn Drexler: Who Does She Think She Is? opens at the Albright-Knox on October 22, 2016. The work is now in the collection of the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Smithsonian Institution, Washington, DC. Join us on Friday, October 21, from 7 to 9 pm, for the free public opening of the exhibition.
