The Human Factor
 
Tuesday 17 June  - Sunday 07 September 2014
 
International artists confront the question of how we represent the 'human' today.
 
The Human Factor surveys how artists over the past 25 years have reinvented figurative sculpture, looking back to earlier movements in art history and drawing on contemporary imagery.
 
The artists engage in dialogues with modernist, classical and archaic models of art.
 
Across their work, the figure is a catalyst for exploring concerns from political violence and mortality to sexuality and voyeurism.
  
The exhibition will feature works by over 20 leading international artists including Pawel Althamer, Frank Benson, Huma Bhabha, Katharina Fritsch, Ryan Gander, Rachel Harrison, Georg Herold, Thomas Hirschhorn, Jeff Koons, Paul McCarthy, John Miller, Cady Noland, Ugo Rondinone, Yinka Shonibare, Thomas Schütte, Paloma Varga Weisz, Rebecca Warren, Andro Wekua and Cathy Wilkes.
