From representing the body as an idealist form to invoking the figure as an expressive site of political consciousness, artists have been inspired by the human form throughout time. This presentation—accompanying the exhibition Shoulder to Shoulder: Depicting the Figure at the Palm Springs Art Museum in Palm Desert— explores a diverse range of celebrated works and lesser known gems of modern and contemporary art by Antony Gormley, Duane Hansen, Jacques Lipchitz, Manuel Neri, Jaume Plensa, and Alison Saar, among many others.
