The convergence of two giants, they are calling it, and it’s super close to our hotels!
Here’s all the info.
After the Anselm Kiefer retrospective at the Pompidou Centre last year, it’s the turn of the Rodin Museum to show his work, this time disseminating it around their exhibition rooms in order to create a dialogue between the old and the contemporary.
But the works of Kiefer are not the only things on show. The German artists has been given carte blanche to delve into the museum’s reserves and haul out his favourite pieces. It’s an eclectic and often surprising selection that even includes some of the great sculptor’s moulds, even broken ones.
The exhibition is part of a very special year for the museum, which is celebrating the centenary if Rodin’s death.
A special website – rodin100.org – lists all the events planned worldwide, with some important ones happening in Paris, including the centennial exhibition at the Grand Palais and the Rodin Night exhibition that has just started at the Galerie Françoise Livinec.
For more in-depth knowledge about the Kiefer-Rodin exhibition, you might like to try one of the guided visits on offer, or purchase the official catalogue which has just been published (288 pages, 237 illustrations, 35€ here at amazon.fr).
