The Wheeler Brother’s newest exhibition, "Actual Scenes/Genuine Characters," offers a fresh look at the brothers’ sardonic reflections on American pop culture and mythologies surrounding the Texan west. In addition to a varied selection of their individual works, the exhibition features never-before-seen collaborative drawings and paintings between the brothers.

At the MAC, Bryan and Jeff Wheeler explore the iconographies of advertisement and mid-century Americana. The brothers’ collaborative works blend their respective styles in witty mixed-media collages. Works like “Now Even Fresher,” (2010) superimpose a mob of words, images and figures onto recognizably Texan landscapes - through this cacophony of references, the brothers’ incisive commentary unravels the mythos underlying our contemporary moment.

Bringing together decades of their work, "Actual Scenes/Genuine Characters," highlights the Wheeler brother’s indelible contribution to contemporary Texan art.

Following the opening reception, the exhibition will remain on display through February 11.
