Senga Nengudi "Improvisational Gestures" at DePual Art Museum

Since the 1970s, Senga Nengudi has explored the social and physical limits of the human body by alluding to gender and race through abstract sculptures and improvisational performances.

The “R.S.V.P.” series of sculptures, which are made of familiar materials such as pantyhose and sand, mimic the female form but are stretched, pulled, and twisted into distended proportions.
