The Rodin’s exhibtion in Milan will open its doors to visitors and art enthusiasts alike starting from the 25th of October. Thanks to the valuable collaboration with Musée Rodin, Mudec is exhibiting for the first time in Italy a series of fifteen statuettes of dancers dedicated by the French artist to ‘Dance Movements’
Rodin’s exhibition: the shape of dancing
The exhibition is made possible thanks to the collaboration with Musée Rodin in Paris, from which are coming 53 pieces. Through an unprecedented and original project, it describes the fascination and strong creative imprinting that dance had on the artistic genius of Auguste Rodin. A virtuous circle where dance was an inspirational muse for the artist in the early 20th century, and where in turn contemporary dance still finds inspiration from the artist through his ‘dancing’ works, which are unique and so topical.
The exhibition also becomes an opportunity to take an extraordinary journey into the world of dance through a video selection referring to contemporary choreography and choreographers, who were inspired by Rodin for their performances. The continuous dialogue between Rodin’s sculptures and the multimedia and digital system, together with the immersive installation, create a constant play of visual and symbolic cross-references.
The three sections of the exhibition are the result of a complex and painstaking work, and are curated respectively by Aude Chevalier, Assistant Curator of the sculpture department at Musée Rodin, Cristiana Natali, Professor of South Asian Anthropology, Anthropology of Dance and Ethnographic Research Methodologies at the University of Bologna, and Elena Cervellati, Associate Professor of History of Dance and Dance Theories and Practices at the Department of Arts of the University of Bologna.
