Running until January 9, 2019, Lévy Gorvy will present Calder / Kelly, the first major exhibition to explore the visual and personal affinities between landmark American artists Alexander Calder (1989-1976) and Ellsworth Kelly (1923-2016). The exhibition comprises approximately three dozen paintings and sculptures made over the course of five decades, including Calder’s 1954 mobile Red Maze III and 1940 sculpture Black Beast, and Kelly’s paintings Red White (1962) and Three Gray Panels (1987). Presented in collaboration with the Calder Foundation and Ellsworth Kelly Studio, the exhibition suggests a cross-generational discourse and celebrates the artists’ friendship and extraordinary experiences as Americans who were shaped by significant periods of time spent living in Paris.
