Nan Goldin, Raymond Pettibon & More Contemporary Artists Re-Envision the Figure

Launch Slideshow

In the past decades, the human figure has reemerged as central subject matter in contemporary art; a far-cry from traditional depictions, these works render the figure in bold and challenging new ways. This September, Contemporary Art Online offers works from Envisioning the Figure, a powerful, cutting-edge collection with artists including Nan Goldin, Raymond Pettibon and Zhang Huan. At times brutal and raw, these representations encompass many disparate styles, techniques, and media, and together engage a commanding dialogue about what it means to illustrate the human figure today.
