Directions: Ron Mueck

July 18, 2002 – October 27, 2002

Museum: Hirshhorn Museum & Sculpture Garden

Location: Directions Gallery, 3rd Floor

The alarmingly realistic figures of London-based Australian sculptor Ron Mueck (b. Melbourne, 1958) are featured in this show of four works, the centerpiece of which is the Hirshhorn's recently acquired Untitled (Big Man), 2000. Mueck's mixed-media figures are never lifesize, and are often distorted in scale. A strong psychology imbues such subjects as a newborn caught in concentration, and a sleeping woman.
