Lisson Gallery

Fred Sandback

Milan, 18 September – 8 November 2013

Fred Sandback

‘A sculpture made with just a few lines may seem very purist or geometrical at first. My work isn’t either of these things. My lines aren’t distillations or refinements of anything. They are simple facts, issues of my activity that don’t represent anything beyond themselves. My pieces are offered as concrete, literal situations, and not as indications of any other sort or order.’ Fred Sandback, Statement, 1977


Lisson Gallery Milan presents an historic selection of works by the American artist Fred Sandback (1943-2003), his first solo exhibition in Italy for five years. Three key works will be displayed in the main galleries, typifying Sandback’s elegant yet minimal methods of spatial organization. There will also be a number of drawings and scale models of as-yet unrealised pieces dating back to his exhibition with Lisson Gallery in London in 1977.
