Norton Simon Museum - The Expressive Body

Norton Simon Museum - The Expressive Body
Pasadena, CA • opening 2020
"The Expressive Body: Memory, Devotion, Desire (1400­–1750)" displays over 60 paintings, drawings, prints and sculptures from the Norton Simon’s collections, many of which have never been on view. At the time of their production, these depictions of the human figure stirred something essential in viewers. This exhibition reveals the historical potency of the represented body to move the mind through the flesh, and it invites us to examine our own responses to these works today.

The exhibit uses a runway to present the sculptures and take advantage of the view along the length of the galleries visually connecting the the content sections together.
