Andre Cadere

Claire Romaine's picture

Andre Cadere was a Polish-born artist that made his mark on the French art world in the mid-70s.  He was famous for creating and carrying around long striped rods.  Rather than putting his works in shows, he bore them around and became part of the work himself.  Walking around, thouseands of people probably saw his artwork, far more than the work of other artists stuck within the normal means of presentation.  He stirred up some trouble when he took his rod into the shows of other artists, but he retained his positive fame for his interactive, performance-like art pieces.
