Alexander Calder (American, 1898–1976) revolutionized sculpture by inviting unseen forces of the natural world to participate in his art. The works in this exhibition manifest the ways the elements—including the movement of the sea and the blowing of the wind—provided both subject matter and inspiration for many of Calder’s mobiles.

As Jean-Paul Sartre once noted of his works, “One of Calder’s objects is like the sea and equally spellbinding: always beginning over again, always new.”
