Alexander Calder
Original exhibition poster by Calder at the Théâtre Français de la Danse in 1969


About the Item

The original exhibition poster by Calder at the Théâtre Français de la Danse in 1969 stands as a vibrant testament to the innovative spirit of both the artist and the venue. Created by the renowned American sculptor Alexander Calder, this poster not only advertises the event but also embodies Calder's distinctive artistic style and ethos. Calder, known for his pioneering work in kinetic sculpture and mobiles, brings his signature aesthetic to this poster. With bold, primary colors and playful geometric shapes, the design reflects Calder's fascination with movement and balance. The composition exudes a sense of dynamic energy, inviting viewers to engage with the artwork on multiple levels. At the heart of the poster is likely a depiction of one of Calder's iconic mobiles or stabiles, rendered with a sense of whimsy and sophistication. The surrounding typography, rendered in a simple yet impactful font, communicates essential details about the exhibition, including the artist's name and the venue. The choice of the Théâtre Français de la Danse as the location for the exhibition adds another layer of significance to the poster. Founded by the French dancer and choreographer Maurice Béjart, the theater was known for its avant-garde approach to dance and performance, making it a fitting backdrop for Calder's innovative artworks.
