ParisCalder: 1975 and “Flying Dragon”
Gagosian is pleased to announce an exhibition by Alexander Calder to inaugurate the new gallery at 9 rue de Castiglione, in the 1st arrondissement, in Paris.
To mark the opening of the new gallery, Calder’s monumental sculpture Flying Dragon (1975) will be installed in Place Vendôme as part of FIAC Hors les Murs, which presents artworks in emblematic public spaces throughout the city.
The inaugural exhibition at rue de Castiglione will underscore the unique visual language of Flying Dragon, presenting diverse archival materials related to the sculpture and its original maquette, alongside additional works from 1975.
Selected works will also be presented at the rue de Ponthieu gallery to further emphasize Calder’s visual vocabulary and the interplay between nature and abstraction, stillness and motion, and monumentality and ephemerality in his practice.
