The Mortal nude

Join curator Justin Paton and artist Ben Quilty in a discussion of the mortal nude in art. Produced in conjunction with the exhibition 'Nude: art from the Tate collection’.

Historically the male nude has been a muscle man, a super man, a man of action, a victor in the battle of history. But we are not immortal, we are flesh and blood, find out what art has to say about that.
