Carl Andre (1935-2024), one of the best-known sculptors of the Minimal Art movement, will hold his first solo exhibition in a Japanese museum, “Carl Andre: Between Sculpture and Poetry,” at the Kawamura Memorial DIC Museum of Art from March 9th to June 30th, 2024.


Born in 1935, Carl Andre shared a studio with Frank Stella in New York from 1958, where he created chiseled wood sculptures influenced by Constantin Brancusi. In the late 1960s, he began making floor-mounted sculptures of square metal plates, and has exhibited a variety of works in various locations in the U.S., Europe, and elsewhere, varying in scale to suit the space.

In this exhibition, André’s typical sculptures, which are made of wood, metal, and stone, processed into identical shapes and sizes, are placed directly on the floor and spread out in a regular pattern in a large space. Also featured will be André’s poetry, composed of fragments of words typed on a typewriter.
