Mapplethorpe-Rodin at the Rodin Museum – Paris

April 8, 2014 through September 21, 2014

– Sculpture and photography are unified through the work of two major artists in a single exhibition as the Rodin Museum brings together the works of Robert Mapplethorpe and Auguste Rodin, the first time masterpieces by these two renowned figures have been publicly displayed in concert. Made possible through exceptional loans from the Robert Mapplethorpe Foundation in New York, the installation is divided into sections including, “Movement and Tension,” “Black and White/Light and Shadow,” “Eroticism,” and, “Damnation,” presenting 50 Rodin sculptures from the museum’s permanent alongside 102 Mapplethorpe photographs, highlighting a common vocabulary of subject and theme arising from both artists’ passion for the human form most strikingly revealed in the pairing of Rodin’s monumental bronze, “The Walking Man,” (1907) and Mapplethorpe’s study of, “Michael Reed,” (1987) which uses shadow and light on its subject to echo the sculpture’s celebrated pose.
