[March 9 2018]
Following the successful exhibition ‘Hyperrealism. 50 years of painting’ in the spring of 2017, Kunsthal Rotterdam steps into the third dimension with the exhibition ‘Hyperrealism: Sculpture’. The exhibition will present a unique selection of hyperrealist works by the most important sculptors of the past fifty years, including George Segal, Duane Hanson and John De Andrea, to the rise of the international movement, represented by Maurizio Cattelan (Italy), Berlinde de Bruyckere (Belgium) and Australian Sam Jinks.
With 35 artworks by 28 artists, the Kunsthal will present an overview of the worldwide developments in hyperrealist sculpture over the past fifty years. In five different themes, the exhibition will show how our perspective on the human body is subject to constant change. Also shown are the hyperrealist nudes of the American artist Paul McCarthy and works by the French artist Daniel Firman.
The exhibition is a collaboration between the Kunsthal Rotterdam and the Institut für Kulturaustausch in Tübingen (IKA), Germany.
On view from March 10th – July 1st, 2018 at Kunsthal Rotterdam, Museumpark, Westzeedijk 341, Rotterdam.
