This exhibition features an international spectrum of art works from the late 1960s to present which explore how the human body interacts with its physical and socio-cultural environment. The exhibition not only demonstrates how the body itself is portrayed, but also how artists have rediscovered physicality as a resource of artistic material for their art production.
