Description: Rosalyn Drexler: Who Does She Think She Is?: This first full-career retrospective highlights the groundbreaking work of Rosalyn Drexler (American, b. 1926), celebrating her unique contributions to the history of Pop art and her long and multifaceted practice as an artist, novelist, and award-winning playwright. The exhibition features major paintings and collages alongside rarely seen early sculptures as well as photographic and video documentation encompassing Drexler’s wide-ranging and colorful career from the 1950s to the present.

During the early 1960s Drexler earned critical acclaim for visually arresting paintings in which she cut out and painted over figures from movie posters, newspapers, and advertisements, setting them against vivid backgrounds reminiscent of color field painting to create evocative yet often ambivalent scenarios. Zeroing in on sexual stereotypes and the dark side of mass-media spectacle, Drexler’s work has explored themes such as intimacy, violence, and masculinity in ways both humorous and subversive. Her early paintings can be read as a protofeminist take on Pop art that distinguishes her from such well-known peers as Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein and anticipates the appropriation strategies of the Pictures Generation artists in the late 1970s and 1980s
