This exhibition brings together some of the most praised and popular examples of figuration, such as Untitled (Big Man) by Ron Mueck, from the Hirshhorn collection to show how expressionistic and surrealistic impulses toward human representation have evolved from the early and mid-20th century to recent decades. Also included is a video A Life of Errors by Nicolas and Sheila Pye.
