Los Angeles

Hauser & Wirth is proud to present the gallery’s first exhibition in Los Angeles devoted to renowned artist Alexander Calder (1898 – 1976). Organized in collaboration with the Calder Foundation, New York, ‘Calder: Nonspace’ presents primarily monochromatic, abstract sculptures that create volumes out of voids. Works on view will fill the South Gallery, central open-air courtyard, and planted garden with thirty stabiles, mobiles, and standing mobiles weaving through a specially-designed environment created by Stephanie Goto.
