This new publication marks the first comprehensive survey of a seminal body of work that helped make Fred Sandback (1943–2003) into an internationally celebrated artist. This catalog takes its lead from a 1987 presentation of Sandback’s work at Westfälischer Kunstverein in Münster, also called Vertical Constructions. With a mixture of archival imagery of the sculptures in situ in Münster, new photography of these works installed at David Zwirner in 2016 and an expanded selection of sculpture, this publication is both a historical document and a source for the renewed attention to this body of work. Scholarship by Yve-Alain Bois revisits the power of Sandback’s immateriality in the context of the vertical constructions while Lisa Le Feuvre, a longtime scholar of sculpture, offers a more historical treatment of the show in relation to the artist’s writings and other works from the 1980s.
Yve-Alain Bois is professor of the history of art at Harvard University.
