Carl Andre

Carl Andre’s simplified, ordered sculptures and installations established the artist as one of the primary players of the American Minimalist movement of the 1960s and ‘70s. Andre was born in Quincy, MA, in 1935. He moved to New York City in 1957 to pursue a career as a poet. He soon met artists Constantin Brancusi and Frank Stella, both of whom greatly influenced his work, and shared an art studio with the latter for several years. In 2014, the artist was the subject of a comprehensive retrospective at Dia: Beacon, New York, that featured both visual art works and a vast compilation of Andre’s poems. The exhibition subsequently traveled to the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, Madrid, the Hamburger Bahnhof, Museum für Gegenwart, Berlin, and the Musée d'art moderne de la Ville de Paris.
