In 1931, Alexander Calder pioneered the mobile as a form of modern sculpture. In the decade following this development, Calder continued to incorporate nontraditional materials—like wood, string, and wires—into his work and perfected a system of weights and balances to become an innovator of mobile art. "Calder 1941," a collection of his most noteworthy pieces, is now on display at the Pace Gallery in New York City through December 23.
Italian artist Francesco Clemente—best known for his collaborations with Andy Warhol, Jean-Michel Basquiat, and Allen Ginsberg—discusses his latest release, Made in India, with Salman Rushdie at Strand Books in New York City.
