Rodin, when marble dances

Rodin, when marble dances
#Exhibitions

Dance was one of the research topics that most fascinated the father of modern sculpture, the Frenchman François Auguste René Rodin. This exhibition, created in collaboration with the Rodin Museum in Paris from which 53 of the works on display come, tells through a new and original exhibition project the charm and the very strong creative imprint that dance had on Rodin's artistic genius. The method with which the story unfolds in this exhibition at the Mudec in Milan is particular: alongside the French master's sculptures, a selection of videos referring to contemporary choreography and choreographers who drew inspiration from Rodin for their representations are presented. The continuous dialogue between Rodin's sculptures and the multimedia and digital apparatus, together with the immersive setup, create a constant play of visual and symbolic references that makes this exhibition much more than a simple display of sculptures.
