WHY: (From Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago's website)
"In the mid-1990s, something changed, and an emerging generation of international artists became greatly interested in Calder's straightforward, hands-on method of working; his emphasis on materials and on the visual and physical experience of his artworks; and his dedication to having his works speak for themselves rather than relying on context, biography, or theory. Alexander Calder and Contemporary Art: Form, Balance, Joy is the first exhibition to explore Calder's influence on this generation of contemporary artists."
