Body Double: The Figure in Contemporary Sculpture
Historically, the human figure has served as the near singular subject addressed in sculpture. From the 1950s forward, abstract and non-representational modes of thinking became critical to sculptors and representing the figure in more literal terms fell largely out of fashion. Recently, many artists have returned to the figure but in decidedly contemporary terms. This exhibition is a survey of contemporary sculpture around the subject of the human figure as both an object and a metaphor.
