Auguste Rodin (French, 1840–1917) is one of the most celebrated sculptors of the modern age, represented in museums and private collections across the globe. Rodin in the United States: Confronting the Modern follows Rodin’s rise to eminence in the United States due in large part to the collectors, critics, and curators who helped make it happen. The exhibition shows Rodin working across an array of media—from bronze and marble to terracotta and plaster—and reveals his incredible daring and inventiveness as he continually pushed against and beyond traditional notions of sculpture.
Curious about Rodin in the United States? Inquiring Minds invites participants to explore the exhibition through small group conversation. How did Rodin rise to prominence in the United States? What recurring themes can we see in his works? How does his choice of medium influence our perception of his work? During this program, we will explore these questions and more through close looking and group discussion. Come as you are and share your observations and opinions.
Inquiring Minds meets in the Taylor Lobby of the Wieland Pavilion. Please make your way to the check-in cart located in front of Ellsworth Kelly’s Blue, Green, Red to have your digital ticket scanned. Stools and assistive listening devices will be provided.
