Save Event: Creature

I've seen this

People who have saved this event:


A free general admission installation that fills the museum’s first-floor galleries with more than 50 works presenting approaches to figuration and representations of the self in the Broad collection


From slick avatars and popular icons to images rooted in mythology and animal instincts, the installation features works by over 25 artists including Georg Baselitz, Joseph Beuys, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Ellen Gallagher, Leon Golub, Jenny Holzer, Damien Hirst, Takashi Murakami, and Andy Warhol plus Thomas Houseago’s Giant Figure (Cyclops), 2011, which is making its U.S. debut.

Ranging from artworks that examine the human body, to others that allude to a physical presence outside of the artwork itself, Creature offers an array of lenses through which to view the human experience, some scientifically based and others drawing inspiration from cultural representations of how living things change over time.
