Pictures at an Exhibition presents images of one notable show every weekday.

Today’s show: “Michael Bilsborough: Changing of the Guard” is on view at Invisible-Exports in New York through Saturday, July 14. The solo exhibition features a hand-drawn mural.

An excerpt from the press release:

The artist writes, “Seeing the Pollaiuolo engraving in the 2017 Michelangelo exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum, I was impressed by its choreography of libido and violence. But I also questioned the context of the exhibition’s rhetoric about ‘genius’ and ‘divine’ artistry — especially given that the show coincidentally opened only weeks after the passing of Linda Nochlin, who famously looked past those myths and labels.”
