Private lecture and exhibition – Alexander Calder: Performing Sculpture

  • Tate Modern |
  • Talk and Tour |
  • Friday, 5 February 2016 - 10:30

“There cannot be a happier exhibition in Britain than Tate Modern’s Alexander Calder: Performing Sculpture. Its hanging, hypnotic dramas of twisted wire and cut metal soar and swoop, float and dazzle, with a joy and lightness of spirit....”.  Financial Times. 

Join the Art Fund Kent fundraising committee for an illuminating private lecture on Calder, followed by a visit to the exhibition itself.  A friend of Joan Miro and admired by Albert Einstein, Calder invented what we now know as the ubiquitous ‘mobile’ (Marcel Duchamp coined the word), beloved by modern generations of children.  His creations are delightfully poetic and approachable, and not to be missed.    

Please note: Meet for coffee at 10.30am followed by the lecture and tour at 11.00am prompt.

This event has been organised by the Kent Volunteer Fundraising Committee to help raise money for the Art Fund.
