Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art presents The Contemporary Figure

January 9, 2019 - January 1, 2020

This collection of works features contemporary objects from the 1960s to today with varying presentations of the human figure. Although artists have depicted the human figure for millennia, 20th-century movements such as Conceptual art, Minimalism, and Abstract Expressionism moved away from the time-honored practice of figurative art. Our current moment is rich with a resurgence of diverse artists working with the figure.
