Alexander Calder: Modern from the Start The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA)

Mar 7, 2021 — Aug 7, 2021

One of the most treasured American artists of the last century, Alexander Calder reimagined sculpture as an experiment in space and motion. He upended centuries-old notions that sculpture should be static, grounded, and dense by making artworks that often move freely, interacting with their surroundings.

One of the most treasured American artists of the last century, Alexander Calder reimagined sculpture as an experiment in space and motion. He upended centuries-old notions that sculpture should be static, grounded, and dense by making artworks that often move freely, interacting with their surroundings.

Over the course of many decades, The Museum of Modern Art provided a setting for Calder's work, and this exhibition looks at his art through the lens of his connection with MoMA. Calder's art was first exhibited here in 1930, only months after the museum first opened its doors, and his sculptures have been a mainstay of the museum's galleries and Sculpture Garden ever since.

Taken from MoMA's own collection and augmented with key loans from the Calder Foundation, this exhibition covers the full scope of Calder's work, from the earliest wire and wood figures to the monumental abstract sculptures of his later years.
