\n

Originally fro m Vienna\, Austria\, artist Rudi Molacek embodies the spirit of a true roma ntic. He approaches his luminous oil paintings with unencumbered confidence \, employing bold and gestural brush strokes buoyed by a dash of whimsy. Hi s life long love of gardens is channeled into paint\, translating his appre ciation of nature onto the canvas. The paintings radiate with the timeless virtues of color\, of light and the simple yet essential joy of a flower in bloom. \; \;

\n

 \;

\n

On view will be a new suite o f large works on canvas fresh from Rudi&rsquo\;s studio in Berlin.

Following its recent announcement of plans to open a temporary space in Northern California\, Pace is honored to present Alexander Cald er: The Art of Invention\, Pace Menlo Park&rsquo\;s inaugural exhibition\, from April 17 to May 13\, 2014. From monumental stabiles\, br onzes\, standing and hanging mobiles to colorful gouaches and wearable jewe lry\, this exhibition explores Calder&rsquo\;s visionary approach to art-ma king and his innate ability to see potential in a variety of unlikely art m aterials. The Art of Invention marks five years since Calder was last exhib ited in the Bay area\, at the San Jose Museum of Art.

\n

Renowned for his i nvention of the mobile\, a kinetic construction of suspended abstract eleme nts that describe individual movements in changing harmony\, Calder also de voted himself to making outdoor sculpture on a grand scale from bolted stee l plate\, which stand in public plazas in cities throughout the world. Cald er&rsquo\;s wide body of work includes paintings\, drawings\, prints\, book illustrations\, jewelry\, tapestries\, and costumes and mobile decor for b allets and theatrical productions.

\n

The Art of Invention present s over twenty-five works from six decades. Using wire\, wood\, glass\, shee t metal\, bronze and found objects\, Calder introduced biomorphic forms and Surrealist imagery into abstract sculpture. In Bird (c. 1955)\, a small 15 -inch object\, Calder twisted wire and cut tin cans to create the impressio n of feathers\, tail and beak.

\n

Masterworks including the standing mobile \, Aspen (1948)\, exhibited in the Whitney Museum&rsquo\;s 1976 show 200 Ye ars of American Sculpture and the bright red\, 12-foot long Brontosaurus (1 970) made from cut and painted sheet metal\, exhibited last year at Sudeley Castle in Gloucestershire\, will be on view.

\n

Also on view are maquettes used to develop Calder&rsquo\;s large-scale works\, including Cafritz Foun tain [maquette] (1966)\, a sheet metal and paint study for the iconic Gwenf ritz (1968) currently at the Smithsonian&rsquo\;s National Museum of Americ a History.

\n

The exhibition will also include jewelry\, such as a brooch\, bracelet and necklace Calder made from colored glass and brass\, steel and silver wire\, as well as a selection of gouaches\, showing the interplay o f line\, shape and iconic color in Calder&rsquo\;s work.

\n

The Art of Invention continues Pace&rsquo\;s four-decade relationship with the Ca lder Estate\, during which the gallery has presented a dozen exhibitions of the artist&rsquo\;s work.

\n

Alexander Calder (1898&ndash \;1976) is one of the most acclaimed and influential sculptors of the 20th century. Born in 1898 in Pennsylvania to a family of sculptors\, Calder beg an crafting toys and objects from the materials and tools available to  \;him at an early age. In 1919\, he graduated with an engineering degree from Stevens Institute of Technology and moved to New York to enroll at the Art Students League. In 1926 he trav elled to Paris\, where he would periodically live and work until 1933\, and where he created his fabled Cirque Calder (1926&ndash\;31). After visiting Piet Mondrian&rsquo\;s studio in 1930\, Calder began experimenting with ab stract constructions\, exhibiting his first non-objective works in 1931.

\n

Alexander Calder has been the subject of dozens of exhibitions at museums worldwide\, including retrospectives at the Museum of Modern Art (1943)\, S olomon R. Guggenheim Museum (1964)\, Whitney Museum of American Art (1976)\ , and National Gallery of Art\, Washington\, D.C. (1998)\, as well as major exhibitions at museums including Museo Guggenheim Bilbao\; The Art Institu te of Chicago\; Centre Pompidou\, Musé\;e national d&rsquo\;Art Moder ne\, Paris\; the Detroit Institute of Arts\; Fondation Beyeler\, Riehen\,&n bsp\;Switzerland\; Kunsthalle Basel\; The Menil Collection\, Houston\; The Metropolitan Museum of Art\, New York\; Museum of Contemporary Art\, Chicag o\; The Museum of Fine Arts\, Houston\; The Phillips Collection\, Washingto n\, D.C.\; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art\; Stedelijk Museum\, Amsterda m\; and Walker Art Center\, Minneapolis. In 2011 his monumental standing mo bile Horizontal (1974) was permanently installed in front of the Centre Pom pidou in Paris. Calder&rsquo\;s work is in the collection of nearly every m ajor public art institution in the United States and abroad.

Anne Carson\, who frequently grounds her highly contemp orary writing in the literature of the Greek classics\, will address the da te 610 B.C.E.

\n

According to scholars\, that year represented the height o f the powers of the ancient Greek poet Stesichorus\, on whose fragments she has depended for several of her works.

\n

Writing in a unique style at a m oment of transition from epic to lyric forms\, Stesichorus offers a compell ing model for Carson&rsquo\;s own multifarious and irreverent writing\, whi ch encompasses translations\, poems\, novels\, operas\, essays\, and someti mes\, seemingly\, all of these at once.

\n

Anne Carson is a poet\, translat or\, essayist and professor of classics\, although her work evades most con ventional categories.

\n

Since 1986 she has published 18 books\, including her inventive verse novels \;Autobiography of Red \;(1998) and \;red doc>\; \;(2013)\, which repurpose the Greek m yth of the winged monster Geryon to tell contemporary stories of sexual lon ging and the perils of adulthood.
