Two new installations now on view at the Museum of Modern Art in New York


NEW YORK, NY.- Exquisite Corpses: Drawing and Disfiguration brings together around 90 works from MoMA‘s collection that explore the various operations to which artists have submitted the human figure since the turn of the last century. In a series of cross-chronological groupings, works from a range of moments and movements are brought together, highlighting shared strategies for disrupting the body’s order. MoMA’s five exquisite corpse drawings are on view, along with works by artists from Joan Miró and André Masson to Louise Bourgeois and Robert Gober to Mark Manders and Nicola Tyson. Art’s academic tradition regards the human figure as a symbol of perfection and a primary system of organization, yet these works prove that artists have just as persistently been driven to disfiguration.
