Out of Shape: Stylistic Distortions of the Human Form in Art from the Logan Collection

56 pages.

Price: $5.00

About the publication
The exhibition catalogue focuses on the human form as it is imagined in art in the Vicki (Vassar College class of 1968) and Kent Logan collection. Together, the Logans have amassed one of the most important collections of international contemporary art in United States. Many of the artists in the Logan collection are known for their use of the portrait to explore issues of psychological identity as well as to reinvent figuration as a conceptual tool. In the work of such artists as Lisa Yuskavage, George Condo, Marc Quinn, Nicola Tyson, and Francesco Clemente, the human form takes on a radically expressive shape, while other artists such as Laylah Ali, Chris Ofili, John Currin, and Cecily Brown portray their human subjects with distinctive stylistic distortions. The catalogue features works on paper by twenty-six contemporary artists along with a small selection of paintings and sculptures. Also included in the exhibition will be work by Kim Dingle, Nicole Eisenman, Moyna Flanagan, Gajin Fujita, Antony Gormley, Kurt Kauper, Fang Lijun, Kelly McLane, Jason Middlebrook, Bruce Nauman, Manuel Neri, Richard Phillips, Mel Ramos, Thomas Schütte, Andy Warhol, John Wesley, and Su-en Wong.
