Auckland Art Gallery

From Turner to Matisse, Picasso to Ernst, Hockney to Freud, Bonnard to Giacometti and Emin to Sherman, trace artists’ captivation with the human form through two fascinating centuries of art.

Beautiful, sensual and at times provocative ‘The Body Laid Bare’ presents more than 100 original artworks by many of the world’s most famous artists drawn from the celebrate Tate Collection, London.

At the heart of the exhibition, discover Rodin’s gleaming, white marble sculpture, The Kiss – a larger-than-life reflection on romantic love – as it travels from Europe for the first time.

Join our pop-up tours at 1pm and 3pm daily free with exhibition entry. Tour themes: Heart Laid Bare, Dreams Laid Bare and The Soul Laid Bare.
