Alexander Calder: Radical Inventor
“Alexander Calder: Radical Inventor” at the National Gallery of Victoria (NGV) brings together approximately one hundred sculptural and pictorial works from an artist who changed the course of modern art. Widely acknowledged as the artist who made sculpture move, Alexander Calder is credited with the invention of many new artistic forms, including his two most acclaimed inventions: the mobile and the stable. This exhibition covers the full breadth of the American artist's career, from his two-dimensional line drawings to his iconic three-dimensional wire portraits.
