Calder Foundation

Film Commissions

Building on Calder’s collaborations with filmmakers such as Herbert Matter and Hans Richter during his own lifetime, the Calder Foundation has inaugurated an ongoing series of commissioned films curated by Vic Brooks that seek to capture the real-time experience so essential to understanding the artist’s work. The resulting films and videos, each in response to a Calder work, expand on the artist’s legacy through the distinctive potential of moving images to explore duration, motion, and materiality.
