Pace Gallery and Acquavella Galleries are pleased to announce Calder / Miró: Constellations, featuring the Constellations series of Alexander Calder and Joan Miró, respectively. The distinct yet complementary presentations illuminate the startling affinities between the two artists, who at the time the series were created, were separated by the Atlantic during World War II and unable to communicate. Presenting approximately 60 sculptures, paintings and works on paper in dialogue with one another, these shows highlight the varied formal, social and political concerns that informed the significant series—neither of which were actually named Constellations by the artists themselves.
Miró: Constellations will be on view from April 20 through May 26 at Acquavella Galleries, 18 East 79th Street, and Calder: Constellations will be on view from April 20 through June 30 at Pace Gallery, 32 East 57th Street. A joint opening reception will be held on Wednesday, April 19 from 5:30 to 8 PM at both galleries.
