With Performing Sculpture, the Tate Modern in London presents the UK's largest ever exhibition of Alexander Calder, who was one of the ground-breaking artists of the 20th Century and pioneer of kinetic sculpture. Alexander Calder: Performing Sculpture brings together around 100 works and shows how Calder turned sculpture from a static object into a continually changing work to be experienced in real time.
The exhibition features the figurative wire portraits Alexander Calder created of other artists including Joan Miró and Fernand Léger; a selection of panels such as Red Panel and White Panel; motorized mobiles such as Black Frame and A Universe; sculptures animated by just air currents such as Snow Flurry I; mobiles with sound such as Triple Gong; and Calder's newly restored large scale mobile Black Widow. The exhibition runs until 3rd April 2016.
