The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, presents Carl Andre: Sculpture as Place, 1958–2010, an exhibition tracing the full evolution of the work of Carl Andre, a crucial figure in the redefinition of contemporary sculpture. 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.

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 are represented by a large selection of sculptures including the artist’s defining floor sculptures, modular arrangements of unaltered building and industrial materials such as brick stacks, metal squares, slabs, and timber blocks.

An unprecedented display of poems and typewriter works examine the pivotal role of language in Andre’s practice, providing a strikingly intimate perspective on his visionary approach to concrete poetry. The exhibition also offers a rare opportunity to view a selection of Andre’s Dada Forgeries, a legendary series of assemblages and readymade-like pieces produced sporadically between the late 1950s and the early 2000s, as well as ephemera and photographic documentation.
