Outgoing loan to: Bodily Space: New Obsessions in Figurative Sculpture, organized at the Albright-Knox by Project Curator Holly E. Hughes, will be on view from April 20 to Sept. 7, 2004. The exhibition offers an ideal complement to Rodin's work by expanding upon overlapping themes such as the effect of space, context, and size on one's perception of the sculptural body. This concept is exemplified in Ron Mueck's comical, yet solemn work Untitled (Big Man), 2000, which has become hugely popular with visitors to the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden of the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C. The exhibition will explore other contemporary themes in figurative sculpture, including the uneasy marriage of biology and technology, drama, and abstraction. In addition to the artists previously mentioned, the exhibition also includes works by other internationally acclaimed artists: Maurizio Cattelan, Katharina Fritsch, Antony Gormley, Duane Hanson, Juan Muñoz, Nam June Paik, Charles Ray, Alan Rath, Peter Sarkisian, Kiki Smith, and Spencer Tunick. Each artist will be represented by a single work or series of works.
