This exhibition surveys a group of major works by Australian-born, London-based sculptor Ron Mueck. Mueck's sculptures are some of the most widely acclaimed and identifiable works in the international contemporary art arena. Often naked and suspended in states of self-consciousness, introspection or deep contemplation, his figures present both emotional and physical states of exposure. Astounding in their realism, Mueck's works have earned him a singular place as the creator of some of the most evocative sculptures of our time. Featuring celebrated works from Australian and international collections, in addition to new sculptures, it is one of the most comprehensive exhibitions of Mueck's work ever presented.
