Calder Foundation
Calder: Gravedad y la Gracia
18 March–12 October 2003Fundación del Museo Guggenheim Bilbao

Curated by Carmen Giménez, Calder: Gravedad y la Gracia traced the development of the artist’s unique vision through a selection of sculptures created over his five decades of involvement with abstract form. The exhibition evidenced how Calder’s desire to create an art that would resonate with life led to a constant engagement with the pull of gravity, the circulation of air, and the play of chance.
