Alexander Calder: Performing Sculpture. Retrospective at Tate Modern, London (VIDEO)

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.
