Intelligence Alexander Calder: Hypermobility

Alexander Calder, an artist, sculptor, and visionary has recently inhabited the 8th floor of the Whitney Museum as part of the new exhibit, Hypermobility. As the title suggests, Calder transformed sculptures into moving objects, a dramatic departure from previously stagnant works. The exhibit offers a rare chance for visitors to experience the pieces in motion- just as Calder originally intended.

Calder’s works occupy every inch of the gallery floor, with brightly colored mobiles dangling from the rafters and sculptures hidden inconspicuously in corners. As a unique part of the exhibit, visitors are invited to experience daily activations of the works. While the term “activation” is particularly exciting, the movements vary from a motorized spectacle to a gentle tap with a padded pole- prepare accordingly.

The activation schedule can be found here. An optional soundtrack that accompanies the exhibit can be obtained at the museum check-in desk or online.
