A major exhibition of 50 of Alexander Calder’s mobiles and stabiles opens this weekend in Chicago. In December, says the Associated Press, it’s coming to North Texas’ Nasher Sculpture Center.


The Associated Press reports on a new exhibition of Alexander Calder mobiles and stabiles that opens this weekend at Chicago’s Museum of Contemporary Art and will be there through the summer. Alexander Calder and Contemporary Art: Form, Balance, Joy features more than 50 of Calder’s works, some drawn from the MCA’s stock, others from the Whitney and MOMA in New York, plus Houston’s Museum of Fine Arts. The show also has an accompanying exhibition of some 30 works by young artists (36 to 43) inspired by Calder.

The AP also reports that the exhibition (that’s its catalog, left) will be coming to the Nasher Sculpture Center Dec. 11-March 6.

  • Alexander Calder is my favorite artist! So much so that I named my son Calder. I can’t wait for this exhibit! Putting it on my calendar now.
