The Body Electric explores the human form, embodiment and the lived experience through key works from The Niland Collection. Artists have long been interested in representing the human figure in art. From early cave drawings, to formal portraiture and performance art, artists have utilised the human body as a subject matter to explore identity, to form social and political narratives, and to express beliefs. The works in this exhibition examine aspects of the way in which the human figure and the human spirit are evoked and represented in artworks to express the essence of what it is to be human, and the way in which we are all connected.
