Versus Rodin: bodies across space and time
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.
