This exhibition is culled from the past two years of acquisi tions by MoMA's Department of Drawings. Anchored in various explorations of the late 1960s\, these works reveal a range of creative\, intellectual\, a nd critical impulses—whether serving as an intimate record of the artist’s practice\, or purposefully crafted to address an assumed wider audience. Ge rman artist Franz Erhard Walther created a suite of “work drawings” to illu strate (both functionally and conceptually) his First Work Series (1963–69) \, a group of 58 interactive sculptural objects\, on display at the Museum for the first time since their original presentation here in 1969. While ro ughly contemporary\, Willem de Kooning’s “Eyes-Closed” drawings of 1966\, w hich were sketched blindly by the artist\, offer a counterpoint to Walther’ s project and seem to embrace the traditional role of drawing as a tool of private expression\, while Martha Rosler’s Bringing the War Home: House Beautiful photomontage series of 1967–72 turns a critical eye to the er a’s sociopolitical context and expanding media sphere.
