    Calder and Abstraction: From Avant-Garde to Iconic

    Alexander Calder's abstract works revolutionized modern sculpture and made him one of the most celebrated artists of the 20th century. In collaboration with the Calder Foundation, this exhibition brings together 40 of the artist's mobiles (kinetic metal works) and stabiles (dynamic monumental sculptures) to explore how Alexander Calder introduced the visual vocabulary of the French Surrealists into the American vernacular.

    This exhibition was organized by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, in cooperation with the Calder Foundation, New York. This exhibition is supported by an indemnity from the Federal Council on the Arts and the Humanities. Carolyn and Peter S. Lynch and The Lynch Foundation provided generous support. The AMG Foundation and Eaton Vance Investment Counsel sponsored the exhibition. The East India Marine Associates of the Peabody Essex Museum provided additional support.
