Join us for the opening reception for Contemporary Spotlight: Trenton Doyle Hancock in the Menil Collection main building. This program is free and open to all.
About the exhibition
Epidemic! Presents: Step and Screw!, a series of thirty works on paper by Trenton Doyle Hancock (b. 1974), combines illustrations and text in a comic strip-like format. For this presentation, Epidemic! will be installed in a shed, constructed in the center of the gallery and illuminated by a single light bulb, echoing the story told in the ink drawings. On the exterior walls of the shed and the surrounding gallery walls, the artist will create a new tableau of related site-specific drawings, extending the narrative beyond the thirty framed works into the exhibition space and visitor experience.
