Gesture: Works from the collection
Works that communicate ideas about the broader human experience through body language and gestures.
The figure is a perennial subject within art. This collection exhibition explores how artists use the figure and specifically, body language and gestures to communicate ideas about the broader human experience.
Whether slumped shoulders, crossed arms or a proud chin held up high, Gesture looks closely at the way bodies can express emotions and ideas without words.
