Ordovas, 25 Savile Row, London, W1S 2ER, 8th February – 6th April 2013 (please note the exhibition is closed over the Easter weekend March 29th - April 1st)
As April approaches so does the final chance to see ‘Movement and Gravity: Bacon and Rodin in dialogue’ at the Ordovas, London. An exhibition which celebrates the powerful portrayal of movement that Auguste Rodin’s sculptures achieve, and how they informed Francis Bacon in his painting.
The exhibition will close to the public on the 6th of April. Audiences are encouraged to visit to appreciate side-by-side the works of both renowned artists, to witness and interpret the intriguing narrative of the 'dialogue' in their art. A highlight for Francis Bacon enthusiasts is the opportunity to view in public, in the UK for the first time ever, ‘Three Studies from the Human Body’, 1967.
Exhibiting Francis Bacon's canvases in his definitive style, surrounded with exuberant gold frames and behind glass, the work can be viewed unrestrictedly close. Complimented by the Ordovas not using barriers around the pieces, viewers can experience Francis Bacon art up close and witness the power behind each one of his brush strokes.
If you are unable to attend the exhibition, the Ordovas website features installation images, as well as video of Joe Moran's 'The Modulated Body', a dance piece inspired by the exhibitions ethos, and a collection of press articles. A catalogue is also available to purchase here.
Closed for Easter: 29 March-1 April
