This group exhibition from the Alberta Foundation for the Arts’ permanent collection features a selection of works focused on the study of the figure. The human figure provides a vast window into humanity, allowing us to document culture and ideology. It has been a source of inspiration throughout history and has been depicted in almost every art period and genre. 

 Delicate contour lines, voluptuous strokes of watercolour and thoughtfully etched textures express the beauty of the human form throughout the works in this exhibition. Figured spans five decades (1966 to 2004) and features twelve renowned Canadian artists 

 Curated by Xanthe Isbister, Esplanade Arts and Heritage Centre (TREX Region 4)
