"Calder Shadows"

Critics' pick
Free
The play of shadows that Alexander Calder's various mobiles cast on the walls was always a significant, if understated, aspect of their design, one that the artist was keenly aware of, even if most viewers considered the effect to be secondary (if it was considered at all). Secondary becomes primary in this group of Calder sculptures, which are installed in the gallery's darkened space and lit dramatically with spotlights positioned on the floor. The result strangely evokes Weimar cinema, if not the spook house, and it looks undeniably cool.
