The Boldness of Calder

WHEN:

27th September 2016 to 5th November 2016
Free Entry

WHERE:

Louisa Guinness Gallery, 45 Conduit Street, London, W1S 2YN

WHAT:

Discover the radical artistic jewellery practice of Alexander Calder at this special exhibition from the Louisa Guinness gallery. The exhibition presents iconic images of his jewellery being worn by notable women throughout history.

“Like true vessels of Calder’s artistic manifesto, the women who wore his jewellery were some of the most forward thinking and unconventional of their time” says Guinness. “Our decision to exhibit images of these women wearing their Calder jewels - Simone de Beauvoir, Georgia O’Keeffe and Peggy Guggenheim among them - alongside the jewels themselves, is a celebration of their, and Calder’s, subversive spirit.”
