Fred Sandback (1943 – 2003) was an American artist. Sandback had a profound impact on many later installation artists, as well as gaining notoriety for his sculptural works alongside contemporaries Dan Flavin, Sol LeWitt and Donald Judd. Sandback used single pieces of yarn and elastic cord, stretching the materials across spaces to divide them into geometric planes. Major solo exhibitions of Sandback’s work have been held at Whitechapel Gallery, London (2011); Kuntsmuseum Lichtenstein, Vaduz (2005); and the Fred Sandback Museum in Winchendon, Massachusetts which was open 1981-1996.
