This exhibition brings together major paintings, photographs, and sculptural works by contemporary artists who choose to depict the body as a point of examining mortality, transience, and identity. Uncommon Likeness includes loans from artists and prominent private collections, as well objects from Sheldon’s permanent collection, that speak to the human condition of negotiating both literal and figurative borders of geography, society, psychology, gender, and spirituality in today’s world.
In our dynamic world, art reflects conditional reality, and design contributes to further development of global societies. At Parsons School of Design, rigorous practice and critical scholarship prepares students to become leading agents of commentary and change.
