Exhibition: "Alexander Calder and Contemporary Art: Form, Balance, Joy"
This groundbreaking exhibition pairs 34 masterworks by Alexander Calder with the work of seven contemporary artists whose practices are bound to Calder's legacy as a modern sculptor. This is the first exhibition to explore Calder's significance for an emerging generation of sculptors, reconsidering his influence and innovation through a presentation of his own work alongside the work of contemporary artists. Admission to "Alexander Calder and Contemporary Art" is $10 for adults ($15 with guided tour), $5 for children 7 to 17, and free for children 6 and under. Admission is free for Duke students (on same day of admission, one per I.D.) and for Nasher Museum members (two free tickets per day per membership).
