It also features an extensive collection of slide images, housed in purpose-built display units, that depict artworks, exhibitions and events from throughout the Foundation's history.

The Body Extended: Sculpture and Prosthetics

Our Summer 2016 exhibition traced how artists have addressed radical changes to the very thing we humans know best: our bodies. Three videos document Rebecca Warren's 'Man and the dark'; prosthetic limbs from the early 20th century; and how Franz West's 'Adaptives' interact with the human form.
