The Body Laid Bare: Masterpieces from Tate – 18 Mar - 16 Jul 2017.

The body – in all its complexity – will be explored in The Body Laid Bare: Masterpieces from Tate, Auckland Art Gallery’s major exhibition for 2017.

Beautiful, sensual and at times provocative, more than 100 artworks from the Tate, London, will tell the story of the nude and trace artists’ captivation with the human body over the last two centuries.

At the heart of the show is Auguste Rodin’s marble sculpture 'The Kiss', which – although celebrated worldwide – is travelling outside Europe for the first time.

Other renowned works include Picasso’s 'Nude woman in a red chair' (1932) and Bonnard’s 'The bath' (1925).
