Alexander Calder and Contemporary Art: Form, Balance, Joy
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 in art, 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.
MCA Curator Lynne Warren, and contemporary artists Nathan Carter, Aaron Curry, Kristi Lippire, Jason Meadows, and Jason Middlebrook provide insight on the exhibition.
