Mannequin Exhibition Explores The Spooky World Of Life Size Dolls

Silent Partners
Artist & Mannequin from Function to Fetish

For centuries, the mannequin, or lay figure, was little more than a studio tool, a piece of equipment as necessary as easel, pigments and brushes. This major new loan exhibition reveals the multiple purposes it serves – from fixing perspective and painting reflections, to being a support for drapery and costume – and shows how it gradually moved centre stage to become the subject of the painting, photograph or film, eventually becoming a work of art in its own right.

“The Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge has announced the final details of its major 2014 Autumn exhibition titled, Silent Partners: Artist and Mannequin from Function to Fetish. This will be the first exhibition ever to uncover the evolution and widespread use of the artist’s mannequin, or ‘lay figure’. It will show how, from being an inconspicuous studio tool, a piece of equipment as necessary as easel, pigments and brushes, the lay figure became the fetishised subject of the artist’s painting, and eventually, in the 20th century, a work of art in its own right. Life-size mannequins, dolls and over 180 remarkable artworks from collections across the world will be displayed in Cambridge this autumn. The world of the mannequin was strange, surprising and riddled with contradictions.”
