Powerful Figures features sculptures from disparate cultures around the world and across time that embody the dual concepts of power, as both a fundamental social dynamic and part of our innate wiring to respond to figures and faces. Curved niches encourage visitors to engage with each artwork, like Alison Saar’s 2018 sculpture Weight, singly, decluttering the field of view and focusing attention. Poetically concise labels heighten the emotional tenor of the experience.
