Open Studio: Conserving Calder

Calder’s Circus (1926-31) is one of the Whitney’s most beloved artworks and a seminal piece in Calder’s oeuvre. Eleonora Nagy, a conservator specializing in modern and contemporary sculpture who worked with the Circus, speaks about her techniques and approach to conserving the work.

Open Studio allows visitors to engage with artists and practitioners in the galleries through performance and public participation.
