Exhibit examines arts-prostheses link

A major exhibit at the Henry Moore Institute in Leeds, UK, explores the relationship between visual arts and prostheses.

“The Body Extended: Sculpture and Prosthetics” traces how artists have addressed radical changes to the human body.

Presenting more than 70 artworks, objects, and images spanning the late-19th century to the present, the exhibition explores how sculpture and medical science have augmented the analog human figure, expanding its reach and power, according to the institute.

The exhibit opened in July and is on view until October 23. Go to henry-moore.org for more information.
