Alexander Calder and Contemporary Art: Form, Balance, Joy
Vertical Foliage, 1941
Alexander Calder is a huge source of inspiration for me and I really wish I could visit this exhibition at the Museum Of Contemporary Art of Chicago. But for now I'll have to settle with the images of his fascinating work!
Read below the Museum's announcement to find out more about Alexander Calder and the exhibition.
"Alexander Calder and Contemporary Art: Form, Balance, Joy pairs the work of Alexander Calder with the work of seven contemporary artists whose practices are bound to Calder's legacy as modern sculptor. While a well-known, even beloved figure, Calder has not previously been considered an important point of reference for contemporary artists. This is the first exhibition to explore Calder's significance for an emerging generation of sculptors, reconsidering his influence and his innovation through a presentation of his own work alongside the work of contemporary artists."
