The Body


Artworks in which the human body is the central focus or medium. In the 1960s, contemporary artists such as Vito Acconci and Bruce Nauman reacted to Modernism’s rejection of the human form by focusing on the body, notably through performance. Other artists known for foregrounding the body include Matthew Barney and Marina Abramović.
