Description Carl Andre (born 1935) stands alongside Sol LeWitt and Donald Judd as a founding father of American Minimalism. Since the early 1960s, he has transformed the popular understanding of sculpture, opening up the works to public interaction and everyday experience. This catalogue is the first comprehensive publication on Andre since 1996, and therefore provides the most complete overview to date. It reproduces a selection of Andre’s early Concrete poems, made between 1961 and 1968, linking them to his sculptural methods in their mutual aim to cut, stack and arrange discrete elements. Several sculptures are reproduced here for the first time, from early works such as “Convex Pyramid” (1959) to several works from the early 2000s that revisit this fledgling piece, as well as numerous examples of Andre’s famous floor sculptures from 1969 to 2010. Concise, thorough and sleek in design, it provides a fresh revisioning of this major artist.
