Description - Hyper Real by National Gallery of Australia

Hyper Real charts the evolution of hyperreal art into the twenty-first century through the work of key figures in its early development in the 1960s and 1970s to today's artists who are exploring new mediums and technologies that progress the genre's compelling narratives and tropes.

From eerily lifelike figures to out-of-this-world virtual reality, these works provoke reflection, fascination, fear, and joy, and chronicle the cycles of life and our constant need for connection, posing the fundamental age-old question of figurative sculpture: 'what makes us human?' A question that takes on even greater impetus in our radically changing world.
