Marlene Dumas: Measuring Your Own Grave is the first mid-career survey of the work of Marlene Dumas (b. 1953, Cape Town, lives in Amsterdam) to be organized by an American institution. Dumas’s rigorous investigation of the human condition is manifested through portraiture, figuration, and her ongoing, painterly exploration of the body. The exhibition, which includes over 100 paintings and drawings, is organized according to specific subjects Dumas has examined throughout her 30-year career, including children, pregnant women, the dead, and the female nude.
