MOCA presents Carle Andre: Sculpture as Place until July 24, 2017. 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. An unparalleled display of Andre’s poems and typewriter works will examine the pivotal role of language in his practice, providing a strikingly intimate perspective on his visionary approach to concrete poetry. The exhibition offers a rare opportunity to view a selection of Andre’s Dada Forgeries—a legendary series of assemblages and readymade-like pieces produced sporadically, but consistently, between the late 1950s and the early 2000s—as well as ephemera and photographic documentation.
