This exhibition of approximately sixty works by Alexander Calder (USA, 1898-1976), comprises six diversely creative decades of the artist’s life. Constituting a broad panorama, exhibition is a testimony to the enduring contemporaneity of Calder and the importance of their artistic contributions.
Calder is known as the inventor of the ‘mobile’, a type of “suspended sculpture” made of sheet metal and wire that captures movement in a series of ever-changing forms, offering radical alternatives to the language of abstraction and art concepts existing; It is also famous for its “stabiles”, static implicit motion sculptures.
With the curatorship of Sandra Antelo-Suarez, the exhibition follows the vision and the relevance of Calder as one of the artists more pioneers in the last century. ‘Theatre of Encounters’ presents the diversity of his work, revealing their multifaceted artist approach.
Theatre of encounters is organized by Fundación Proa with the collaboration of the Calder Foundation, NY.
