Alexander Calder Exhibition in Manhattan


An excellent exhibition of The American sculptor Alexander Calder (1898-1976) will take place at L&M Arts in Manhattan. The exhibition The Complete Bronzes, includes the artist's bronze “Dancer” (1944).

Calder, an American sculptor best known as the originator of the mobile, a type of kinetic sculpture. His kinetic Sculptures were delicately balanced or suspended components, which move in response to motor power or air currents; by contrast, Calder’s stationary sculptures are called stabiles.



While not quite as original as his mobiles or stabiles, Calder’s bronzes are shot through with his irrepressible spirit and talent for insouciant distillation. The ancient medium enabled him to move deeper into art history; to keep pace with and borrow from other more traditional strands of modernist sculpture and to use his hands and amazing tactile sense in a different way. The exhibition sheds new light on his complex sensibility while also showing him pursuing some of his characteristic interests, like levitation in an unlikely material “bronze”.



Calder got to reconcile modernism and popular art, with assists from folk and what was then called primitive art. This exhibition is possible thanks to the collaboration with the Calder Foundation, the show doesn’t quite live up to its title, since a loan or two fell through at the last minute, but it is the first exhibition to concentrate almost exclusively on these works. The Complete Bronze exhibit will take place until December 8 2012 at L&M Arts, 45 East 78th Street, Manhattan.
