From July 17th until October 19th, the Whitney Museum of American Art will be exhibiting Collecting Calder, a retrospective of the work of Alexander Calder. The New York City institution boasts the largest collection of Calder’s work in the world and will be exhibiting his drawings and sculptures, giving equal representation to the two main aspects of his output. Calder’s Circus – miniature circus-themed dioramas rendered from wire, string, cork, wood, paper, metal and cloth – will be shown alongside the whimsical mobiles he is known for, as well as static sculptures he called ’stabiles’. This exhibit is a must for anyone one who is interested in the American artist and wants to see a large selection of his work collected in one venue.
