Calder in “Gemeentemuseum Den Haag”

The exhibition about the work of Alexander Calder in the Gemeentemuseum Den Haag will take place until 28 May 2012.

Thanks to a prestigious Turing Art Grant, which made this important exhibition possible, the Gemeentemuseum Den Haag will present Alexander Calder–The Great Discovery, the first major Calder retrospective to be held in the Netherlands since 1969. Calder’s radical wire sculptures, astonishing Cirque Calder (1926–1931), and mobiles characterized by immateriality and movement won the artist worldwide fame and established him as one of the foremost founders of modern sculpture. The exhibition focuses on the legendary meeting between Alexander Calder and Piet Mondrian at the latter’s studio in Paris in October of 1930, and explores the impact the studio environment made on Calder, which left an even more indelible impression on him than the paintings.

Since 1965, Calder’s Le Tamanoir can be seen in the Rotterdam area Hoogvliet.
