On view Apr 2 – July 24, 2017
Tracing the full evolution over five decades of the work of Carl Andre, a crucial figure in the redefinition of contemporary sculpture, MOCA presents Carl Andre: Sculpture as Place, 1958–2010. The retrospective, which premiered at Dia:Beacon in 2014, includes sculptures; poems and works on paper; a selection of rarely exhibited assemblages; and an unprecedented selection of photographs and ephemera. This is the first museum survey of Andre’s entire oeuvre, and the first retrospective in North America since 1978–80.
The exhibition represents all major historical and aesthetic shifts in Andre’s career, from his early exercises to his most recent work. The main stages of Andre’s mature oeuvre will be represented by a large selection of sculptures, including the artist’s defining sculptures made out of modular arrangements of unaltered building and industrial materials such as brick stacks, metal squares, slabs, and timber blocks.
