The exhibition features more than fifty works created between 1912 and 1967, many of which have seldom or never before been exhibited.

Features a conversation between Alexander S.C Rower, Bernard Ruiz-Picasso and Phong Bui, ‘Liberating Lines’, an essay by Susan Braeuer Dam, ‘Picasso, Miro and Calder at the 1937 Spanish Pavilion in Paris’, an essay by Jordana Mendelson and ‘The Mobile Line’, an essay by Robert Slifkin.

Alexander Calder

Alexander Calder was born on July or August 22, 1898, in Lawnton, Pennsylvania, into a family of artists. In 1919, he received an engineering degree from Stevens Institute of Technology, Hoboken, New Jersey. Calder attended the Art Students League, New York, from 1923 to 1925, studying briefly with Boardman Robinson and John Sloan. As a freelance artist for the National Police Gazette in 1925, he spent two weeks sketching at the circus; his fascination with the subject dates from this time.
