Curated by Dieter Buchhart and Anna Karina Hofbauer, Calder Now at the Kunsthal Rotterdam explored the artist’s influence on contemporary art. Calder’s mobiles, stabiles, and standing mobiles were installed in conversation with works by ten prominent artists: Olafur Eliasson, Žilvinas Kempinas, Simone Leigh, Ernesto Neto, Carsten Nicolai, Aki Sasamoto, Roman Signer, Monika Sosnowska, Sarah Sze, and Rirkrit Tiravanija. From enigmatic installations that defy gravity and sculptures that induce extraordinary optical experiences to artworks that appeal to all the senses, this presentation revealed new connections with Calder, bringing into focus the countless extensions of his legacy.
