Take a deep dive into the full breadth of Alexander Calder’s career and inventiveness win a survey of early wire and wood figures, works on paper, jewelry, mobiles in motion, and monumental abstract sculptures.

Calder’s work was first exhibited at MoMA in 1930, just months after the Museum opened its doors. Throughout MoMA’s formative years, Calder, in his unofficial role as “house artist,” was called upon to produce several commissioned works—including Lobster Trap and Fish Tail, a multicolored mobile that hangs in the same stairwell for which it was made in 1939. His works have been a mainstay of the Museum’s galleries and Sculpture Garden ever since.
