Body Language: Figuration in Modern and Contemporary Art

Exhibition Website

Feb 25 2017 - Jul 9 2017

Drawn from the Tucson Museum of Art’s permanent collection and selected loans, this exhibition explores stylistic and conceptual trends in contemporary figurative art. Artists presented here rely on the human figure to examine notions of beauty and identity and to establish psychological states of being. Body Language reveals the expressiveness of the human body as a kind of non-verbal language that communicates to the viewer in varied and nuanced ways.

Included in this exhibition, curated by Dr. Julie Sasse, Chief Curator and Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art, are works by Luis Cruz Azaceta, Robert Bechtle, Casey McKee, George Segal, and Andy Warhol, and many others.
