Conserving Calder’s Circus

GABBLER RECOMMENDS: Alexander Calder performs his “Circus” | Whitney Museum of American Art

Alexander Calder shows us what all the amazing wire models that make up his miniature circus can do in this film by Jean Painleve from 1955. Calder is famous for his colorful mobiles, but Cirque Calder is one of his incredible lesser-known works from 1931.
