Calder Gallery at Fondation Beyeler: Trees – Naming Abstraction

June 28, 2013

The Calder Gallery in the Fondation Beyeler in Riehen (Basel, Switzerland) is a collaboration between the Calder Foundation and Fondation Beyeler. It’s a dedicated space in the museum, where selected works by Alexander Calder are shown. The first presentation (2012-13) was a tribute to Mary Calder Rower, the artist’s younger daughter. Recently, the second presentation that will run until 2014 opened under the title Trees – Naming Abstraction.

In this video, Alexander S. C. Rower (Chairman and President, Calder Foundation) and Oliver Wick (Curator at Large, Fondation Beyeler) talk about the title and the concept of the exhibition, the differences between the first and the second Calder Gallery at Fondation Beyeler, the restoration of the large outdoor sculpture that will be on view again soon in the park of Fondation Beyeler, and specific works in the show, such as the models for the avant-garde redesign of the Bronx Zoo, and the mobiles The Forest is the Best Place and El Corcovado.
