The naked body is frequently the physical terrain artists traverse in search of the inner self. How to represent love, shame, solitude and sexual yearning? Drawing from the self or life model, from reproduction or the imagination, has provided artists with the freedom to explore desires, fears and fantasies.

This exhibition takes selected works on paper by Egon Schiele as its starting point to explore the subject of the body exposed. It considers the response of modern and contemporary artists to an embrace of the body and of drawing as the means to express psychosexual states. 

Participating artists include: David Austen, Fiona Banner, Joseph Beuys, Louise Bourgeois, Paul McCarthy, George Condo, Enrico David, Marlene Dumas, Tracey Emin, Leon Golub, Stewart Helm, Chantal Joffe, Maria Lassnig (Austrian), Chris Ofili, Carol Rama, Egon Schiele (Austrian), Nancy Spero, Alina Szapocznikow, Rosemarie Trockel, Nicola Tyson, Andy Warhol and Franz West (Austrian).
