09.06.2015 – 30.08.2015

Main Building

From 9 June–30 August 2015, the Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts will present Alexander Calder: Retrospective, an unprecedented exhibition dedicated to the acclaimed and influential American artist whose illustrious career spanned much of the twentieth century. Curated by Alexander S. C. Rower, president of the Calder Foundation, New York, and grandson of the artist, the exhibition constitutes Calder’s first retrospective in Russia, featuring over fifty works from the 1920s through the 1970s and lending insight into Calder’s unique genius that completely transformed the history of art. 

The exhibition will begin with the artist’s wire sculptures, his first invention cultivated in Paris, where he moved from New York in the summer of 1926 and quickly gained recognition as a forerunner of the international avant-garde. Also highlighted will be Calder’s work from the years following World War II, after which point the ideological as well as geographical center of the art world shifted from Paris to New York. Calder was eager to exhibit in both the States and abroad, resulting in some of the most remarkable shows of his career. 

Alexander Calder: Retrospective is organized by the Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts in close collaboration with the Calder Foundation, New York. This exhibition will present 52 works from the Calder Foundation’s collection, in addition to sculptures from private collections and a gouache from the Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts, which was gifted by the artist to legendary Russian pianist Sviatoslav Richter in 1970.
