Walk through the Paint Made Flesh exhibition with Chief Curator Mark Scala. This exhibition presents paintings created in Europe and the United States since the 1950s in which a wide range of painterly effects suggest the carnal properties and cultural significance of human flesh and skin. As a revisionist study of post-World War II art, the exhibition offers a rejoinder to the modernist orthodoxies of the mid-to-late 20th century by contending that paints material properties make it well suited to convey metaphors of human vulnerability. The exhibition includes works by Pablo Picasso, Francis Bacon, Lucian Freud, Willem de Kooning, Alice Neel, Leon Golub, Eric Fischl, Georg Baselitz, Jenny Saville, Wangechi Mutu, Daniel Richter, and others.
