Calder’s monumental stabile Black Widow was recently installed at @TheMuseumofModernArt in New York as part of the annual turnover of their sculpture garden. Made in Connecticut in 1959, the work was exhibited in Spoleto, Italy, as part of the legendary 1962 Festival of Two Worlds before entering the museum’s collection in 1963. Swipe through to see the work in Spoleto and in MoMA's garden around 1964.
