bodies across space and time

Coinciding with the centenary of Auguste Rodin’s death, the Art Gallery of South Australia presents Versus Rodin: bodies across space and time, drawing on the Gallery’s own collection of Rodin bronzes, the largest in the Southern Hemisphere.

Regarded today as the artist who ignited an artistic revolution that changed the direction of sculpture, Rodin’s legacy – his expressive vision, his rejection of narrative and embrace of process, seen through his experimental and seemingly unfinished surfaces – is the wellspring for this major exhibition. Through a series of duets and duels, Rodin will be brought into vivid conversation with over 200 works of art by over 60 leading modern and contemporary artists who have similarly challenged our understanding of the human condition.

Presented as part of the 2017 Adelaide Festival, the exhibition runs from 4 March to 2 July 2017. For further information or to purchase tickets visit
