Carl André

Sculpture as place, 1958-2010


The Museum of Modern Art will pay tribute to Carl Andre (born in 1935 in Quincy, Massachusetts), a major American artist of the 20th century.

This retrospective will bring
together, for the first time, the entirety of the artist’s work: around forty
monumental sculptures rarely presented outside the United States, as well as
approximately thirty small sculptures including the Dada Forgeries pieces,
several photography series, and numerous poems. The exhibition will allow
visitors to experience these works that have often been reproduced, but never
brought together, and better understand them as a whole. Carl André, a founder
of minimalism along with Donald Judd and Robert Morris, changed the status of
the work of art: it was no longer a symbolic or figurative element, but a real
object that is part of the world in the same way that a tree or a wall
are.  He used raw materials like wood or
metal whose sizes were limited only by the ability to transport them. The
sculptures, which most of the time were designed around the exhibition space,
resonate with the location and alter the traditional perception of the
spectator. Designed by the Dia Art Foundation in close collaboration with the
artist, this exhibition was presented in New York (2014) and Madrid (until 12
October 2015) and will also be presented in Berlin, and then in Los Angeles.

Exposition Carl Andre : Sculpture as Place, 1958-2010 <br />Du 18 octobre 2016 au 12 février 2017 au musée d'Art moderne de la Ville de Paris <br /> <br />Le Musée d’Art moderne rend hommage à Carl Andre (né en 1935 à Quincy, Massachusetts), artiste américain majeur du XXème siècle. L’exposition Carl Andre – Sculpture as place, 1958-2010 * couvre tout le spectre de son œuvre et en révèle la cohérence, en présentant une quarantaine de sculptures monumentales, de nombreux poèmes, des photographies, des œuvres sur papier et des objets inclassables. Les pièces iconiques côtoient des éléments jamais réunis, comme ses Dada Forgeries. Acteur principal du minimalisme (avec Donald Judd et Robert Morris), Carl Andre est aussi associé à l’art conceptuel et au Land art et apparait aujourd’hui comme l’un des plus grands sculpteurs du XXème siècle. <br /> <br />Pour en savoir plus :
