Provencher_Roy supports the exhibition Alexander Calder: Radical Inventor

12_10_2018

Provencher_Roy is a partner of the exhibition Alexander Calder: Radical Inventor, the ingenious artist who “made sculpture move.” It will be held from September 21, 2018, to February 24, 2019, at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts (MMFA).

The firm is a proud partner of the first major Canadian retrospective dedicated to American artist Alexander Calder (1898-1976). The latter presents the work of one of the greatest artists of the 20th century and focuses mainly on the talent as an inventor of this painter and sculptor.

Developed, organized and circulated by the MMFA, in collaboration with the Calder Foundation, the exhibition brings together over 150 works and documents to better understand the extent of the artist’s extraordinarily innovative multidisciplinary practice: from drawings to wire portraits, and from the invention of the mobile to monumental stabiles. Over the course of an international career that spanned half a century, this American exhibited on five continents. He used an impressive array of media, including drawings, sculptures, paintings, design (for toys, fountains, textiles, the exterior of airplanes and cars, posters) as well as stage sets and props for dance and music performances.
