A sculptor who began working during the postwar period in a classical figurative style, Alina Szapocznikow radically reconceptualized sculpture.  Alina Szapocznikow: Sculpture Undone, 1955–1972 offers a comprehensive overview of this important artist’s work that responds to many of the ideological and artistic developments of her time.  Her artwork is at once fragmented and transformative, sensual and reflective, playfully realized and politically charged.
