Abstract

Auguste Rodin was an artist who redefined the idea of the body in sculpture. Marking 100 years since his death in 1917, Rodin’s legacy is the wellspring of this major exhibition. Versus Rodin: bodies across space and time brings together key pieces by this pioneer of modern sculpture with an innovative selection of work by leading modern and contemporary artists who have similarly challenged our understanding of the human condition. Exclusive to the Art Gallery of South Australia, Versus Rodin includes the Gallery’s significant collection of bronze sculptures by Rodin, the largest collection in the Southern Hemisphere. Through a series of duets and duels, Rodin’s work is brought into conversation with over 100 modern and contemporary works of art by Louise Bourgeois, Antony Gormley, William Kentridge, Bharti Kher, Rosemary Laing, Ugo Rondinone and Kara Walker among others
