This coming autumn, Kunsthal Rotterdam will proudly present ‘Calder Now’, an extensive exhibition that explores for the first time in Europe the modern master’s enduring and unmistakable influence on contemporary art. ‘Calder Now’ presents over twenty sculptures by Alexander Calder alongside works by ten prominent contemporary artists: Olafur Eliasson, Žilvinas Kempinas, Simone Leigh, Ernesto Neto, Carsten Nicolai, Aki Sasamoto, Roman Signer, Monika Sosnowska, Sarah Sze and Rirkrit Tiravanija. This must-see Kunsthal production is being realised in close collaboration with guest curators Dieter Buchhart and Anna Karina Hofbauer, and the Calder Foundation.
From Sunday 21 November enigmatic, gravity-defying installations, sculptures that induce extraordinary optical experiences, and art that appeals to all the senses will reveal new connections with Calder and bring into focus the countless extensions of his legacy.
