1. KIEFER RODIN presents new work by Anselm Kiefer, one of today’s most influential living artists, juxtaposed with and inspired by sculptures and drawings by Auguste Rodin on the 100th anniversary of Rodin’s death. Both Rodin (1840–1917) and Kiefer (b. 1945) establish an analogy
between architecture—speciﬁcally Gothic cathedrals—and the human body in their work. The exhibition, co-organized by the Musée Rodin in Paris, includes several of Kiefer’s large-scale illustrated books made in homage to Rodin; large paintings; and vitrines ﬁlled with assorted
objects such as molds, dried plants, stones, and pieces offabric. The contrast of Rodin’s work with Kiefer’s emphasizes Rodin’s modernity and his proximity to contemporary practice. The exhibit runs from November 17, 2017–March 12, 2018. Lisa Saltzman and Catherine Conybeare chatted with Barnes Executive Director and President Thom Collins during the Kiefer Rodin preview reception.
