Featuring works by Giorgio de Chirico, Alexander Rodchenko, Constantin Brancusi, Berenice Abbott, Man Ray, and others, Flesh and Metal considers how modern painters, photographers, and sculptors reconciled the impersonal world of the mechanical with the uncontrollable realm of the human psyche, producing a wide range of imagery responding to the complexity of modern experience. Flesh and Metal is jointly organized by the Cantor Arts Center at Stanford University and SFMOMA.
