i am still alive : politics + life in contemporary drawing
I Am Still Alive is an exhibit currently open at MoMA. I visited this past weekend and enjoyed many of the included works, so many of which incorporated letter forms. León Ferrari's Untitled piece is pictured above, one of my very favorites from the collection.
The focus of the exhibit is on how different artists have expressed their existence and individual humanity in the wider context of their cultural and political environments -- be it at odds or in sync. I highly recommend a visit. The show is up until September 19th.
