Works by Calder, Sandback and Tuttle coming to the Pulitzer

July 18--Solo exhibitions of works by esteemed artists Alexander Calder, Fred Sandback and Richard Tuttle are set to open in May 2015 at the Pulitzer Arts Foundation -- the first to be presented after the renovation of the Tadao Ando-designed building's lower level. It will also be the first time that the institution will present concurrent exhibitions.

"The opening of our expanded gallery spaces in May marks a new chapter for the Pulitzer in which we will be able to provide our audiences with an even broader range of arts experiences," director Kristina Van Dyke said in a statement. "The three inaugural exhibitions -- showcasing Calder's mobiles and related sculptures, Sandback's stretched acrylic yarn sculptures, and Tuttle's works in wire -- play ideas of lightness off the mass and solidity of our building."

The Calder exhibition will feature 14 influential works and be presented in the existing main gallery spaces on the upper level. The Sandback exhibition, featuring about a half-dozen important works, will be presented in one of the two new gallery spaces on the lower level. The Tuttle sculptures will be showcased in the other new space.

Additional information about the exhibitions and the expansion will be announced in early fall 2014. For general information about the institution formerly known as the Pulitzer Foundation for the Arts:
