This exhibition will survey all major historical and aesthetic shifts in the artistic practice of Carl Andre (b. 1935). Though his artistic importance—particularly in relation to Minimalism—has long been established in the United States, his work has been rarely addressed, and never shown in depth, by an American or international institution in more than 30 years. This exhibition will draw on iconic pieces from Andre’s most productive period in the 1960s and 1970s, as well as more recent sculptural experiments. A comprehensive selection of the artist’s poems will address the pivotal role of language in his practice. The unprecedented display of these two lines of aesthetic inquiry will afford the rare opportunity to trace the full evolution of Andre’s thinking.
The exhibition will also travel to the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía (May 7–October 12, 2015), the Nationalgalerie im Hamburger Bahnhof (May 7–September 25, 2016), and the Museé d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris (October 20, 2016–February 12, 2017).
