All eleven artists in Inside this Human Clay, a show organized by critics Sarah Lehrer Graiwer and Jan Tumlir at ltd Los Angeles, work with models, depict the figure in a relatively realistic way. The show takes its title from The Human Clay, a 1976 exhibition artist R.B. Kitaj organized in London to announce a new interest in figuration, and includes work by Kitaj, as well as Vanessa Beecroft’s spare drawings of a model in fetal position and Kristian Burford’s sculptures of crumbling mannequins.
