Pigott Family Gallery (142)


Full Figure presents a selection of prints, drawings, paintings, photographs, and sculptures that depict the human body from head to toe. Artists including Diane Arbus, Kerry James Marshall, and Cang Xin invite us to consider their subjects’ physical presence in the world, exposing the ways they have been rendered invisible and claiming a space of their own in the history of art. The installation features many recent acquisitions on view for the first time, recent acquisitions, and familiar visitor favorites from the Cantor collection like Duane Hanson’s Slab Man (1974–1975) and Hope Gangloff’s Lorem Ipsum (2017).


This installation is organized by the Cantor Arts Center. We gratefully acknowledge support from the Marmor Foundation Gift Fund.
