Joyce Wadler, “Did Carl Andre, the Renowned Minimalist Sculptor, Hurl His Wife, a Fellow Artist, to Her Death?,” New York Magazine, December 16, 1985. 160 Pages. Cover photograph of Andre by Gianfranco Gorgoni; photograph of Mendieta by Wendy Evans.

A detailed account of the relationship of two high-strung, argumentative people — a male artist famous for his extreme minimalist works, and his younger wife just beginning to be recognized for feminist inflected body and performance art rooted in her Cuban heritage. The article lays out the circumstantial evidence that Andre pushed Mendieta out the window. He was later acquitted in a 1988 trial.
