The Human FactorA major survey examining how figurative sculpture has been reinvented from the late-1980s to the present, The Human Factor displays works by contemporary artists including Pawel Althamer, Frank Benson, Huma Bhabha, Thomas Hirschhorn and Jeff Koons. Featuring uncanny images of historical and political figures including Adolf Hitler, John F. Kennedy, Dick Cheney and Jesus, the exhibition explores the ways in which society constructs identities, social positions and values. Highlights include Yinka Shonibare MBE's Boy on Globe, Paul McCarthy's confrontational and hyper-realistic casts of actress Elyse Poppers, and Katharina Fritsch's 'space pictures' featuring life-sized cast figures.
