An in-depth survey of human figuration, Hyper Real: Sculpture 1973–2017 presents major works from 30 artists spanning more than 50 years of hyperrealist practice. Hyperrealism, paralleling photorealism in painting, commenced in the 1960s and 70s when a number of sculptors became interested in a form of sculptural realism based on a vivid and felike representation of the human figure.
