Rate this:
While showcasing a large number of Calder's early abstract sculptures, this book also presents key works by his contemporaries, such as Piet Mondrian, Joan Miró and Jean Arp. By setting Calder's work alongside that of other artists, the volume establishes lines of influence and differentiation, as well as the larger context in which he created his sculptures. Full-page images of Calder's iconic mobiles and stabiles give a rare sense of Calder's often playful use of space, and enable readers to study his work in detail. An accompanying DVD includes historical and experimental films, avant-garde music, interviews and a walk through the exhibition, presenting the whole of Calder's achievement in an unprecedented fashion. Exhibition: Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen, K20 Grabbeplatz, Düsseldorf (7.9.2013-12.1.2014).
