Calder/Tuttle:Tentative focused on Calder’s artistic output in 1939, bringing together small- and medium-scale sculptures as well as works on paper. The works were selected and installed by Richard Tuttle, whose vision for the exhibition disrupted long and widely held ideas about Calder’s impact on viewers and other artists during his lifetime and since his death. “What was it about 1939 that made it special?” Tuttle writes. “Was it a year on the brink of massive world war, when creativity blossomed as much as it had in 1913, before the First World War? The present exhibition is called Tentative because this quality predominates in Calder’s approach and achievements.” David Kordansky Gallery in LA held a concurrent exhibition of works made by Tuttle as freewheeling analogies to Calder’s storied practice and the contexts in which the artist worked.
