Face to Face

Artist Marc Quinn will juxtapose his eight-part series Emotional Detox with the iconic “character heads” by Baroque sculptor Franz Xaver Messerschmidt. The exhibition at the Upper Belvedere presents a thoughtful and impactful dialogue between contemporary art and major works from the museum’s collection.  Messerschmidt’s work has long been an inspiration to Quinn, and the “character heads” directly influenced the creation of Emotional Detox.
