NGC@WAG: Ron Mueck

Saturday, May 23, 2015
– Sunday, October 4, 2015
Winnipeg Art Gallery 300 Memorial Blvd
11:00 am – 5:00 pm

UK-based Australian artist Ron Mueck is known for his startlingly realistic sculptures that portray humans at key stages in life, from birth through middle age, to death. In works that are either monumental in scale or undersized, he explores the human condition and psyche. Mueck maintains an extremely high standard of craftsmanship, beginning with clay maquettes and sculpting in fibreglass, silicone, and resin. A Girl (2006) is an oversized baby in response to a new baby’s sudden domination of the household, while Untitled (Old Woman in Bed) (2000) was inspired by Mueck’s visit to see his wife’s ailing grandmother, a tiny, vulnerable woman enveloped in hospital linens. Included in this exhibition are sculptures, maquettes, and preparatory studies.

Open until 9pm on Fridays. Closed Monday, except for most holidays.
