Accompanying Lévy Gorvy’s exhibition Calder / Kelly, this catalogue centers on the artists’ friendship and shared pursuit of an abstraction inspired by natural forms. A timeline authored by Veronica Roberts traces the history of their relationship with previously unpublished letters between the artists and members of their shared circle of friends. Innewly commissioned essays, Calder biographer Jed Perl examines resonances between the artists and philosopher Robert Hopkins discusses the similarities and differences in their approaches to abstraction. New poetry by Dan Chiasson, Forrest Gander, and Simon Perchik beautifully responds to works in the exhibition.
