Calder in France , produced in collaboration with the Calder Foundation, is a tribute to Alexander Calder that focuses on the modern artist’s long-standing relationship with France, beginning with his years in Paris from 1926 to 1933, during which time the artist firmly established his imprint on the avant-garde scene. After the war, Calder spent significant periods of time in Paris in 1946, in Aix-en-Provence in 1953, and finally in Saché in the Loire Valley, where he would design his final monumental studio in 1963 that became in 1989 the Atelier Calder residency programme for artists to pursue projects and create new work in an exceptional environment. The revue contains images of Calder’s work, interviews with Tadashi Kawamata, Abraham Cruzvillegas and Rachel Harrison, a selection of images of past residents’ work, and a special portfolio of models for new sculptures by 2014 resident Monika Sosnowska, highlights on Calder’s relationship with former Cahiers d’Art publisher Christian Zervos through reproduction of pivotal essays on Calder published during the artist’s lifetime, texts by Alexander S. C. Rower, Calder’s grandson and President of the Calder Foundation, Susan Braeuer Dam, Director of Research and Publications at the Calder Foundation, and contributions by Alfred Pacquement, Raphaël Bouvier, Robert Rubin, and Hans-Ulrich Obrist. Accompanying the texts will be defining photographs of Calder and his work by Ugo Mulas and also Agnès Varda, with an interview by art historian Joan Simon.
