[VIDEO] Alexander Calder at Fondation Beyeler, Art Basel Miami Beach 2012
by Vernissage TV

At Art Basel Miami Beach 2012, Fondation Beyeler presented two major works by Alexander Calder, Snow Flurry (1948) and Untitled (c. 1939). In this video, the president of the Calder Foundation, Alexander S.C. Rower, talks about the two exceptional mobiles, revealing some exciting background knowledge on the works.

Alexander Calder’s hanging mobile Snow Flurry is one of his most popular works. The delicate white kinetic sculpture is reminiscent of snowflakes. It comes from the artist’s own collection and has been widely exhibited. In contrast, the untitled black standing mobile had its first public appearance at Art Basel Miami Beach 2012.
