18 March – 20 July, 2009

Centre Pompidou - Place Georges-Pompidou – 75191 Paris cedex 04 –

A “transatlantic” artist, Alexander Calder (1898-1976) is well known here for the large mobiles and stabiles of painted metal to be seen in French cities and parks. As well as presenting outstanding pieces, the exhibition offers an opportunity to witness the original state of works conceived in terms of motion and equilibrium but now condemned to immobility by the exactions of time or by the death of their creator and animator, these being here accompanied by films such as Jean Painlevé’s and photographs such as Brassaï’s, in which they are shown being operated by Calder himself.

Fondation Antoine de Galbert 10, boulevard de la Bastille 75012 Paris

Warhol TV looks at a hitherto little-studied aspect of the work of this leading 20th-century artist, who was open to all the forms of expression available in his lifetime, and who left his mark on American televisual creation in the 1970s and 1980s.
