artists & participants
The human body has a long artistic tradition as an aesthetic object for painters and photographers. The camera lens intensifies the study of the figure through its formal contrasts of light and dark. This exhibition examines the meanings we ascribe to the human body through the diverse contexts of subject and object, in the work of photographers Alfred Stieglitz, Graciela Iturbide, Bill Brandt, Brassai, Manuel Alvarez Bravo, Lucien Clergue, Ralph Gibson, Robert Fichter and Gary Winogrand. The human figure is also familiar as a subject which has captured the attention of artists for centuries. Figurative works will be included in the exhibition by Raphael Soyer, Philip Pearlstein, Tom Otterness, Eric Fischl, and T.A. Zive, among others. This educational exhibition has been made possible in part by American Express
