- O'Connor's large-scale work will be installed in the museum's AT&T Lobby.
The new, large-scale installation Multifaceted Woman will be on display in the museum's AT&T Lobby. It is the ninth such installation in the space.
O'Connor often uses iconic characters from pop culture and literature, such as Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz and Alice from Alice in Wonderland. According to the McNay, her work "aims to pull back the curtain on the idyllic, artificial stereotypes that have been presented in popular culture for decades."
Multifaceted Woman explores similar themes of artificial happiness portrayed in American visual culture of the '50s and '60s. The installation will be on view starting Friday, July 17.
