In close collaboration with the Calder Foundation, New York, Pace will inaugurate the 3,600-square-foot first-floor gallery with a focused exhibition dedicated to Alexander Calder. The exhibition will examine the breadth of the artist’s practice beginning in the mid-1920s and leading up to his creation in 1931 of the mobile—an unprecedented form of kinetic sculpture that created a true rupture in the trajectory of art. From his gestural Animal Sketchings and massless wire portraits of the 1920s to his abstract oil paintings of 1930 and the swift progression to motorized objects and hanging mobiles, this exhibition will capture the remarkable transition from potential to actual energy in Calder’s work and underscore his relentless pursuit of the vitality and life force in art.
