Gemeentemuseum Den Haag acquires first major Fred Sandback sculptures in the Netherlands
American artist Fred Sandback (1943-2003) made sculptures out of wire, cord and yarn. Once seen, they are never forgotten. He stretched colourful filaments of varying lengths between the ceilings, floors, walls and corners of his exhibition spaces to produce intangible sculptures that rely on the illusion of planes, volumes and mass. Influenced by practitioners of Minimal Art like Donald Judd and Sol LeWitt, Sandback made his mark on the art world even as a student in the 1960s. To date, no sculpture by Fred Sandback has featured in any Dutch collection. The untitled works now acquired by the Gemeentemuseum are the very first. The new acquisition has been purchased with the assistance of the Rembrandt Society and the Mondrian Fund. Dating from 1969 and 1988 respectively, they are both made of black, white and yellow acrylic yarn and are currently on show in the museum as part of its Complex Images exhibition.When that show closes, they will be given a place of honour in the museum’s permanent Discover the Modern presentation, alongside works by Carl Andre, Donald Judd and Lee Bontecou.
