Works from the private collection of Arthur Goldberg feature the human figure as a means to understand the human condition. References to the body can be found in each of the paintings, works on paper, and sculptures in the exhibition. Whether a finely detailed self-portrait or an abstracted reference to an inner psychological state, the bodies in this exhibition channel questions about being, experience, and perception.

This exhibition and its catalogue are supported in part by generous gifts from Arthur S. Goldberg and the Arthur Goldberg Foundation.
