Calder / Prouvé
A catalogue documenting two exhibitions of works by Alexander Calder and Jean Prouvé at Gagosian Gallery, Paris, and Galerie Patrick Seguin. Calder/Prouvé evokes comparisons in the broad, expressive range of production, emphasis on form, and use of new technologies that the close friends and collaborators evinced in their parallel practices as artists and designers. Calder works in the book include mobiles, stabiles, and a suite of thirty little-known animal drawings, while Prouvé is represented by rare examples of furniture and architecture including two prefabricated structures. Inedited letters between Calder and Prouve are included in the catalogue. This exhibition was also the backdrop of Raf Simon's SS 14 fashion show.
