From October 16, 2008 through February 15, 2009, the Whitney Museum of American Art presents "Alexander Calder: The Paris Years, 1926-1933," a new look at the artist's early years when his radical innovations included open-air wire sculptures, his beloved and important miniature "Circus," and the creation of a new art form, the mobile. This video excerpts scenes of Calder performing the "Circus" from a 1955 film by Jean Painleve.
