Tate Modern: Exhibition /// 11 November 20153 April 2016 | London

American sculptor Alexander Calder was a radical figure who pioneered kinetic sculpture, bringing movement to static objects.
Antennae with Red and Blue Dots c.1953
Calder travelled to Paris in the 1920s, having originally trained as an engineer, and by 1931 he had invented the mobile, a term coined by Duchamp to describe Calder’s sculptures which moved of their own accord.

His dynamic works brought to life the avant-garde’s fascination with movement and brought sculpture into the fourth dimension.
