Thirty Years on Paper
11am - 5pm
a retrospective of drawings by Rocio Rodriguez
“MOCA GA approached me about having a retrospective of my work, and I suggested a show of only my drawings since drawing has always been the backbone of my work,” says Rodríguez. Thirty Years on Paper is a retrospective exhibition that spans works created from 1988 – 2018. Many of the works in this exhibition have never been shown. Some of the drawings are tangential, such as the ‘war drawings’, that accompanied bodies of work in paintings that expressed diverse concerns and subject matter.” —Rocío Rodríguez
