Fwd: Rodin's The Kiss comes to Turner Contemporary this autumn

The Kiss
4 October 2011 -
2 September 2012
Rodin'sThe Kiss comes to Turner Contemporary.

From 4 October 2011 - 2 September 2012 Auguste Rodin's life-size marble sculpture The Kiss, 1901-04, will be installed in our Sunley Gallery.
On loan from the Tate collection and one of the most iconic images of sexual love, The Kiss was voted the nation's favourite work of art in a 2003 poll. The embracing couple come from a true thirteenth century story of forbidden love, which was immortalised in Dante's Inferno and by many artists since.
The sculpture's arrival coincides with our second major exhibition Nothing in the World But Youth (17 September 2011- 8 January 2012). This exhibition explores how youth experience has been reflected in art, culture and the media since the late nineteenth century to the present day and will feature paintings, photographs, items of clothing and early JMW Turner works, many depicting the local area of East Kent.
