The sculpture program is built on the tradition of modeling the human figure by hand. Direct observation of the body, supported by the study of anatomical structure, provides a platform for exploring the challenges of creating form. Discussion and critique with prominent figurative sculptors create a dialogue on expression, metaphor and the role of figuration in the ever-shifting context of contemporary art.
“The people who most touch me are poets, because poets, like sculptors, work with images, they do not theorize or philosophize, they create, they visualize images just like a sculptor does.”
- Louise Bourgeois
