Join the Menil for a live, online program with artist Alice Aycock, organized in conjunction with Dream Monuments: Drawings in the 1960s and 1970s, on view at the Menil Drawing Institute from May 21 to September 19, 2021. Aycock’s talk will include a focused discussion of her early body of works on paper depicting fictional cities, examples of which are included in the exhibition. She is joined by Dream Monuments cocurators Erica DiBenedetto and Kelly Montana for a conversation that will consider the reverberations that key themes explored in these works—stories, cities, and drawing—have had throughout her practice.

This program takes place online. The live event will stream directly on this page and the Menil’s YouTube channel. Registration is not required. If you would like to receive an email reminder, please sign up here by June 15 at 5 p.m. CT.
