The Carl Andre Catalogue Raisonné, LLC and Dr. Eva Meyer-Hermann are currently preparing a Catalogue Raisonné of Carl Andre sculpture, organized in collaboration with Cahiers d'Art Institute (CDAI), and with the support of the Paula Cooper Gallery, New York, and the Konrad Fischer Galerie, Düsseldorf/Berlin.
The publication will record and illustrate some 2,300 sculptures made by the artist between 1958 and the present. Each work will be accompanied by an exhibition history, bibliography and additional critical apparatus. This will be the first comprehensive catalogue raisonné on the artist's sculpture since the 1987 joint publication on Carl Andre by the Haags Gemeentemuseum, The Hague, and Stedelijk Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven, The Netherlands.
Current and past owners of sculpture by Carl Andre are kindly encouraged to visit the Carl Andre website or to contact the Carl Andre and Melissa L. Kretschmer Foundation (email@example.com), the Paula Cooper Gallery (firstname.lastname@example.org), New York, or Konrad Fischer Galerie, Düsseldorf/Berlin (email@example.com), to complete and return a registration form. All ownership information will be kept confidential.
A central figure in American art since the 1960s, Carl Andre’s (b. 1935, Quincy, Massachusetts) work has been guided by a commitment to pure matter in lucid geometric arrangements. He produces sculptures of rigorous simplicity by arranging unmanipulated found elements—such as bricks, lumber, and metal or stone tiles—into forms determined by the units of matter themselves and their surrounding spaces. Andre’s work has been shown extensively in important one-person and retrospectives exhibitions, most recently at Dia:Beacon in New York (2014), which traveled to the Museo Reina Sofia, Madrid; Hamburger Bahnhof, Berlin; Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris; and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles. His work can be found in public collections including the Museum of Modern Art, New York; Hara Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo; the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam; Tate Modern, London; and the Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris.
