Dieter Buchhart, Anna Karina Hofbauer, Donatien Grau, Eva Van Diggelen
Calder Now presents Alexander Calder’s lasting and unmistakable influence on contemporary art. Together with artworks by the master, this book – which accompanies an exhibition of the same name at Kunsthal Rotterdam – features works by ten contemporary artists: Olafur Eliasson, Zilvinas Kempinas, Simone Leigh, Ernesto Neto, Carsten Nicolai, Aki Sasamoto, Roman Signer, Monika Sosnowska, Sarah Sze and Rirkrit Tiravanija.
Enigmatic, gravity-defying installations, sculptures that induce extraordinary optical experiences, and art that appeals to all the senses reveal new connections with Calder and bring into focus the countless extensions of his legacy.
