The Hysterical Material

This is a show about feelings and emotion: how these twin registers are represented and produced in both the materiality of the body and in the objects we call art. The exhibition investigates these possibilities in the work of two leading artists of Western art history, Auguste Rodin (1840–1917) and Bruce Nauman (born 1941).

This exhibition features nine sculptures and works on paper from the Smart Museum and other collections. It places works by Rodin and Nauman into unusual spatial relationships, calling attention to the artists’ mutual artistic concerns while also focusing a lens on how each sculptor conceives of the body as an emotional instrument, something not always understood by the rational mind.


This exhibit is part of Cenenaire Auguste Rodin, a worldwide celebration of the life and death of Rodin on the 100th anniversary of his death.
