From May 1–September 12, 2015, Pulitzer Arts Foundation presented Calder Lightness, a pristine exhibition underscoring Alexander Calder’s profound impact on the sculptural medium through his iconic large-scale hanging mobiles, early stabiles, and standing mobiles, as well as his less familiar constellations. Guest curated by Carmen Giménez, known for her historic, 2003 exhibition Calder: Gravity and Grace at the Museo Guggenheim Bilbao, it featured sixteen pivotal works, presented in the Pulitzer’s spacious, light-filled upper level galleries. Installed to create for the viewer a full sensory experience of the artist’s master synthesis of line, brilliance, gravity, and movement, the exhibition highlighted Calder’s distinct ability to effect spatial transformation through his seminal biomorphic abstractions.
