The Kandinsky exhibit was a once in a lifetime opportunity to see a large body of Kandinsky's work in chronological order. We were given a look into how Kandinsky's life influenced his work as the exhibit was broken into sections according to the period of his life and where he was living at the time and notations were made as to what was going on both in the world politically and in his life personally.
The gentle movement of both the hanging sculptures and the shadows they cast fills me with wonder, literally takes my breath away. I could stare at the hanging pieces for hours.
Thank you to The Calder Foundation for making those and other pictures of Calder's works available to share on their website.
This exhibit also has a large display of Calder's "Circus" as well as a continually running video of Calder performing the Circus.
If you have 20 minutes to spare watch the following two videos of Calder with his Circus-
Or, you can watch this 5 minute piece-
5 Minute Circus
Calder's Circus and wire sculptures have a way of making me forget time and place. They make me feel like a child for the wonder that they fill me with. If I lived in Paris I would visit this exhibit at least several times a week while it is there.
