Duane Hanson, Serpentine Sackler gallery, exhibition review: profoundly unsettling

When the 1950’s American art establishment was agog with Abstract Expressionism, Duane Hanson was off making hyper-realistic sculptures. Early pieces relating to abortion caused an uproar. This show covers his later sculptures which focused on working people who are overlooked in society. Numerous reviews make it is clear that these works still pack a punch. The images here are well worth viewing.
