ep: the human factor

A promotional picture of Derek in Otto Preminger’s The Human Factor, a spy movie from a novel by Graham Greene, with a screenplay by Tom Stoppard, and has a cast of famous actors. Derek is quite good as one of Nicol Williamson’s peers, who finds himself taking the heat for a lot of Williamson’s misdeeds. Tom Stoppard’s script has a couple of choice scenes and some very funny lines.

“The Human Factor: The Figure in Contemporary Sculpture” explores the ways that artists have reinvented and redefined figurative sculpture over the past twenty-five years.

The exhibition probes our engagement with voyeurism, violence, the commemoration of war and history, and the impact of mass media while drawing on representations of the human body in popular culture.
