DESCRIPTION

Pace London is pleased to present The Calder Prize 20052015, an exhibition exploring the enduring impact of Alexander Calder through the work of six contemporary artists. The exhibition will be on view from 4 February to 5 March 2016 at 6 Burlington Gardens and will feature the work of Calder in conversation with the six laureates of the Calder Prize to date: Tara Donovan (2005), Ċ½ilvinas Kempinas (2007), Tomás Saraceno (2009), Rachel Harrison (2011), Darren Bader (2013), and Haroon Mirza (2015).

The Calder Prize 20052015 highlights Calder’s profound influence on contemporary art, exploring his resonance on a generation of twenty-first century artists. The biannual award in the amount of $50,000, which was inaugurated by the Calder Foundation in 2005, honours artists who have made exemplary work early in their careers that can be interpreted as a continuation of Calder’s legacy. Though the six laureates work in different media, they share a passion for Calder’s innovative spirit to envision new directions for sculpture. Their work hereby re-contextualises the scale of Calder’s influence far beyond his lifetime.
