Emotional body spans more than 1000 years of art making, bringing together works that are carved, cast, assembled and adorned, painted with natural pigments, oils or synthetic paints. This display explores the human condition, and the ways devotion, spirituality and the powers of love or desire are all embedded in art.
See works by Francis Bacon, René Magritte, Brett Whiteley, Patricia Piccinini, Fernand Léger and new acquisition, artist Huma Bhabha’s sculpture Waiting for another game, among others.
