Catalogue – Calder Now


Store:  Kunsthal

Calder Now explores the enduring and unmistakable influence of Alexander Calder on contemporary art.

This catalogue, published on the occasion of the exhibition Calder Now at the Kunsthal Rotterdam,  will pay ample attention to Calder’s life and work, as well as to ten contemporary artists, including Olafur Eliasson, Zilvinas Kempinas, Aki Sasamoto and Sarah Sze. The works by these artists from our own era resonate with important themes in Calder’s oeuvre such as light and reflection, humble materials and ephemera. Enigmatic, gravity-defying installations, sculptures that induce extraordinary optical experiences, and art that appeals to all the senses reveal new connections with Calder and bring into focus the countless extensions of his legacy. It includes essays by the artist, composer, and curator Gryphon Rue, the academic Donatien Grau, and guest curators Dieter Buchhart and Anna Karina Hofbauer.
