Calder & Abstraction at LACMA

24 November 2013 - 27 July 2014
The first ever Alexander Calder retrospective to be held in
Los Angeles, a new exhibition at LACMA traces the development of one of the 20th
century’s most important creative minds.

Spanning more than 40 years of Calder’s output, this new exhibition
will feature over 50 of his works, including installations, sculptures,
mobiles, maquettes, and stabiles. A fully-fledged member of the European avant-garde
despite his American birth, Calder is renowned for his pioneering work in
modernist sculpture, with his focus on concepts that were abstract yet still
playful. The centrepiece of the exhibition will be the work Three Quintains
(Hello Girls), a site-specific fountain commissioned for LACMA in 1964.
