Kiefer Rodin

November 17, 2017–March 12, 2018
Barnes Foundation, Philadelphia

For the centenary of Auguste Rodin’s death, Anselm Kiefer is exhibiting recent paintings and sculptures in dialogue with master works by Rodin. Inspired by the debris and offcuts of Rodin’s sculptures—as well as by relics of his own life and other unusual materials—Kiefer’s recent work shares an instinctive originality with the French master’s oeuvre. The exhibition was co-organized by the Musée Rodin in Paris and has traveled from there.

For the centenary of Auguste Rodin’s death, Anselm Kiefer is exhibiting recent paintings and sculptures in dialogue with the museum’s collection. Inspired by the debris and offcuts of Rodin’s sculptures—combined with relics of his own life and other unusual materials—Kiefer’s recent work shares an instinctive originality with the French master’s oeuvre. The exhibition was co-organized by the Barnes Foundation in Philadelphia and will be presented there this November.
