MAMAC, Nice, France
Tribute to Alexander Calder
from 20.04.2013 till Spring 2014
To honour the structural renovations to the Museum of Contemporary and Modern Art (MAMAC) in Nice, Gilbert Perlein, Chief Curator and Director of the MAMAC invited internationally acclaimed contemporary artist Arne Quinze to make a public art intervention. Arne Quinze known for his large scale wooden and metal public art installations was the reference of choice to inaugurate the museums new start. Evoking communication and social interaction is Arne Quinze's biggest artistic driving force. Primarily by means of his large-scale constructions located in public places, he has amazed many a passer-by.
The wooden sculpture named 'Hommage à Alexander Calder' will be constructed from 8 april onwards and inaugurated the 19th of april. During the summer months and until spring 2014 this installation will evoke a dialogue between the museums architecture, the city and it's public.
