This week's darling: Alexander Calder – Radical Inventor & Minimal/Maximal

Radical Inventor examines how Calder found techniques and inspiration in many disciplines (technology, engineering, architecture, physics, and astronomy) to develop his wire sculptures, mobiles, and stabiles.

Minimal/Maximal focuses on the enormous stabiles he created mostly for public places, as well as his elegant hanging mobiles in sheet metal, miniature standing mobiles, and chess sets, shedding light on the social and performative aspects of his work.
