Organized to celebrate the centenary of Calder’s birth, Alexander Calder: 1898–1976 brought together approximately 200 sculptures to document the artist’s development working in three dimensions, with supporting works on paper, paintings, and jewelry. Curated by Marla Prather and Alexander S. C. Rower, the exhibition was installed on several levels of the Gallery’s East Building and in interior galleries and public spaces, including a rare installation of the monumental standing mobile Southern Cross outside of I.M. Pei’s masterpiece.
