On the occasion of Tate Modern’s landmark exhibition Alexander Calder: Performing Sculpture, and Pace London's exhibition The Calder Prize 2005-2015, Alexander S. C. Rower, President, Calder Foundation and Calder’s grandson, joins Achim Borchardt-Hume, Director of Exhibitions, Tate Modern, to discuss the pioneering artist’s life and work. In particular, this conversation addresses the curatorial direction of the exhibition, revealing how Calder turned sculpture from a static object into a continually changing work to be experienced in real time, reinventing the possibilities of sculpture in parallel with avant-garde developments in theatre and dance.
