"Bodily Space: New Obsessions in Figurative Sculpture"
2004-04-21 until 2004-09-07
Albright-Knox Art Gallery
Buffalo, NY, USA

Striking figurative works by some of the world’s leading contemporary artists will be on view in Buffalo beginning April 20 at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, a leading international center of modern and contemporary art. Organized by the Albright-Knox, Bodily Space: New Obsessions in Figurative Sculpture features 18 works by such artists as Bruce Nauman, Janine Antoni, Robert Gober, Ron Mueck, Tony Oursler, Maurizio Cattelan, and Antony Gormley. Among the highlights are 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.

These are among the finest examples of recent figurative sculpture by very important artists from around the world, said Albright-Knox Project Curator Holly E. Hughes. We are pleased to be able to bring this caliber of contemporary sculpture to Buffalo and hope people will take this opportunity to experience the different ways figurative artists are working today.

This exhibition will complement two other exhibitions: first, a comprehensive exhibition of works by Auguste Rodin, considered the greatest sculptor since Michelangelo; and later in the summer, an exhibition of figurative works from the Albright-Knox’s own highly regarded collection of modern and contemporary art.
