Latest LACMA Exhibit: Alexander Calder Abstract & Avant-Garde

Alexander CalderThe Los Angeles County Museum of Art  (LACMA) presents Calder and Abstraction: From Avant-Garde to Iconic (November 24, 2013-July 27, 2014), the first monographic presentation of Alexander Calder’s work in a Los Angeles museum.

Taking as its compass the large-scale sculpture Three Quintains (Hello Girls), a site-specific fountain commissioned by LACMA’s Art Museum Council in 1964 for the opening of LACMA’s Hancock Park campus, Calder and Abstraction brings together a range of nearly fifty abstract sculptures, including mobiles, stabiles, and maquettes for larger outdoor works, that span more than four decades of the artist’s career. The exhibition at LACMA is organized by senior curator of modern art Stephanie Barron and designed by Gehry Partners, LLP.
