Calder: Hypermobility @ The Whitney

At the The Whitney Museum of American Art FINISHED

This exhibition brings together a rich constellation of key sculptures and provides a rare opportunity to experience the works as the artist intended—in motion.

Regular activations occur in the galleries, revealing the inherent kinetic nature of Calder’s work. Each one individual and alive.

Like little metal monsters.

The Whitney Museum of American Art, known informally as the “Whitney”, was founded in 1931 by Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney (1875–1942), a wealthy and prominent American socialite and art patron after whom the museum is named.

The museum focuses on 20th- and 21st-century American art and places a particular emphasis on exhibiting the work of living artists, as well as maintaining an extensive permanent collection.

Until 2014 the Whitney was located on the Upper East side in Breuer Building (named after its architect, Marcel Breuer), but in 2015 it moved to a new building designed by Renzo Piano in the Meatpacking District.

Fun Fact: There are beehives on the roof and you can buy their honey in the museum’s shop.
