April 26–June 28, 2015 in the Grand Gallery
The 45 paintings, prints, and photographs selected for this exhibition all focus on the human body because, as collection curator Don McNeil points out, the age-old need to understand the human condition is vital and the human form remains its most direct manifestation. Major artists such as Kerry James Marshall, Elizabeth Peyton, Vic Muniz, Hung Liu, Roy Lichtenstein, Jaune Quick-to-See Smith and Alex Soth are represented by works that are both accessible yet thought-provoking, timeless yet relevant to who we are and how we live.
This exhibition is sponsored in Rochester by COMIDA, with additional support from Willy and Bob Hursh, the Robert L. and Mary L. Sproull Fund, and an anonymous donor.
