This exhibition is dedicated to American artist Alexander Calder worldly known to be the originator of the mobile.

He invented the mobile in 1931 when he was in Paris, country where he settled in the 1920s. The name mobile was given by Duchamp to describe those moving sculptures.

This exhibition traces the story of those masterpieces that brought sculpture into the fourth dimension.

Often people connect Calder's work with an artist creating toys for a bedroom children but his art is much much more. The exhibition shows the sophistication behind the simplicity.

Visitors will have a chance to see a sculpture that was vandalised in 1929 and is shown for the first time since then.
