This examination of different approaches to figuration and self-representation takes over the Broad's first floor more than 50 mostly post-'80s works. Local artist Thomas Houseago's imposing 15-foot-tall Giant Figure (Cyclops) sculpture, in its U.S. debut, sits at the exhibition's entrance. The rest of the show compiles a range of human figures, from Jean-Michel Basquiat's primitivist profiles to Alex Israel's selfie-shaped canvases, plus more than 25 other artists, including Leon Golub, Jenny Holzer, Jeff Koons, Georg Baselitz, Takashi Murakami and Andy Warhol.
