Alexander Calder: Performing Sculpture

11 novembER 2015 - 3 april 2016
Tate Modern | London, UK

Alexander Calder was one of the truly ground-breaking artists of the 20th century. A pioneer of kinetic sculpture, he played an essential role in shaping the history of modernism.

Alexander Calder: Performing Sculpture will bring together approximately 100 works — including a selection of his most significant motorised mobiles — to reveal how Calder turned sculpture from a static object into a continually changing work to be experienced in real time.

The exhibition — the largest ever of the artist’s work in the UK — traces the evolution of Calder’s distinct vocabulary, from his initial years captivating the artistic bohemia of inter-war Paris, to his later life spent between the towns of Roxbury in Connecticut and Saché in France.
