Fred Sandback was published on the occasion of two concurrent exhibitions at David Zwirner and Zwirner & Wirth, New York, which examined the broad scope of formal invention that the artist achieved within a defined idiom. The works documented here range from smaller-scale, metal and cord works from the late 1960s to constructions from the 1980s and 1990s that encompass entire rooms, thus demonstrating the artist’s signature vocabulary of forms in varied combinations and at different scales. This fully illustrated catalogue features over 35 plates and includes an essay by philosopher and art historian John Rajchman.
