"The essential difference between a sculpture like Andre's Equivalent VIII, 1978, and any that had existed before in the past is that Andre's array of bricks depends not just partly, but entirely, on the museum for its context. A Rodin in a parking lot is still a misplaced Rodin; Andre's bricks in the same place can only be a pile of bricks."--The Shock of the New, Robert Hughes.

Carl Andre (1935 – 2024) was an American artist who worked in minimalism, known for such works as Equivalent VIII (1966).

His sculptures range from large public artworks (such as Stone Field Sculpture, 1977 in Hartford, Connecticut, and Lament for the Children, 1976 in Long Island City, New York), to large interior works exhibited on the floor (such as 144 Magnesium Square, 1969), to small intimate works (such as Satier: Zinc on Steel, 1989, and 7 Alnico Pole, 2011).

Andre married earth-body artist Ana Mendieta. In 1985, she fell from their apartment window and died after an argument with him. He was acquitted of a second-degree murder charge in a 1988 bench trial, and supporters of Mendieta have protested at his subsequent exhibitions. Andre died in Manhattan on January 24, 2024, at the age of 88.
