Calder’s Works as Meant by the Artist
Hypermobility exhibition on the view in Whitney Museum until October 23rd
Many artists made contour line drawings on paper, but Calder was the first, who in the early 1930s, invented an entirely new mode of art. He used wire to create three-dimensional line ‘drawings’ of people, animals, and objects and then shifted from figurative linear sculptures to abstract forms in motion. Mobiles operate in highly sophisticated ways and for the first time, a museum decided to undertake its very complex approach to present Calder’s works as intended by the artist. Each piece with its own motion, some with sound—-they create unique experiences for the viewers.
In addition, with the support of the Calder Foundation, the museum will host a series of performances and events around the exhibition.
Hypermobility 展览在 Whitney 博物馆展出至10月23日。
许多艺术家在纸上画出轮廓线图，但是早在20世纪30年代，Calder 是第一个发明了一种全新的艺术形式。他用电线创作出人体，动物以及物体的三D线条画，然后将象征性的线条雕塑转换为抽象动态形体。流动操作方式复杂精致，而第一次一家博物馆决定利用其复杂的渠道如实地呈现 Calder 的作品。每一件作品有自己的动态，一些还附有声音——他们为观众创造了独特的体验。
并且，在 Calder 基金会的支持下，该博物馆将围绕该展览举办一系列的演出和节目。
