The Human Factor: Uses of the Figure in Contemporary Sculpture



The Hayward Gallery presents The Human Factor: Uses of the Figure in Contemporary Sculpture. This is an exhibition that examines how artists have managed to reinvent the genre of figurative sculpture.

Over the last 25 years various artists have reassessed and reinterpreted earlier art movements. They have blended their findings with imagery from contemporary culture, mixing classical and archaic methods with modernist features. The works on display all use the figure as a basis to explore various themes, including political violence, mortality and sexuality.

Boasting works by more than 20 world famous artists, highlights include pieces by the likes of Frank Benson, Ryan Gander, Cady Noland and Cathy Wilkes.
