Alexander Calder and Contemporary Art

EPUB EBook by Lynne Warren

EBook Description

Alexander Calder, a legendary and beloved figure in American art, has
not generally been considered a major influence on contemporary artists. Alexander Calder and Contemporary Art EPUB EBook
Yet as the twenty- EPUBfirst century unfolds, many artists are taking cues from
Calder& download; rsquo;s hands-on investigations of form, balance, color, and movement
as well as from his foresight in what we now refer to as the creative reuse
of materials. These artists are returning to explorations of structure and
balance, creating expressive artworks that celebrate the visual over the
intellectual experience.


Drawn from the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago’s in-depth
holdings of Calder’s work and augmented by the artist’s classic mobiles,
standing mobiles, and stabiles from private and public collections, this
pioneering consideration of Calder’s influence includes works by some
of today’s most interesting and engaging sculptors: Martin Boyce, Nathan
Carter, Abraham Cruzvillegas, Aaron Curry, Kristi Lippire, Jason
Meadows, and Jason Middlebrook.


The book features new scholarship on Calder’s creative reuse of
materials by noted expert Brooke Kamin Rapaport. Scholar George
Baker evaluates how the modern era in general and Calder in particular
have influenced young sculptors. Exhibition organizer Lynne Warren
contributes an overview of current sculptural practices in relation
to Calder’s work.There are also contributions by Bryan Granger,
Dominic Molon, Diana Nawi, and Julie Rodrigues Wildholm. Like this book? Read online this: Fables of Aesop According to Sir Roger L'Estrange, with Fifty Drawings by Alexander Calder, Calder Pride (Calder Saga #5).
