‘Calder: Nonspace’ opens this week at Hauser & Wirth Los Angles. Featuring primarily monochromatic, abstract sculptures that create volumes out of voids, the exhibition will be on view through 6 January 2019. Follow the link in our Stories to learn more. –
Works on view will fill the South Gallery, central open-air courtyard, and planted garden with thirty stabiles, mobiles, and standing mobiles weaving through a specially-designed environment created by Stephanie Goto. This unique installation has been conceived to reveal the sculptures’ subtleties and intuitive spatial relationships. ‘Calder: Nonspace’ also features five large-scale outdoor sculptures, transforming the industrial landscape of the Arts District into an oasis for contemplation of Calder’s monumental vision.
Organized in collaboration with the Calder Foundation (@calderfoundation
), New York, this marks the gallery’s first exhibition in Los Angeles devoted to renowned artist Alexander Calder (1898 – 1976). One of the most influential artists of the twentieth century, Calder transformed the very nature of sculpture with his invention of the mobile, introducing the fourth dimension of time and the actuality of real-time experience into the realm of sculpture.
