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.

Comprising pieces from the Whitney's permanent collection, "Real/Surreal" compares and contrasts the real with the subversive, distorted reality that defines surrealism and explores the obscure imagination of the subconscious mind. The exhibit features paintings, photographs, and drawings from artists like Edward Hopper, George Tooker, and Paul Cadmus and runs through February 12 in New York City.
