About this product
- DescriptionIn this important work, Frances Colpitt chronicles the Minimal art movement of the 1960s. Maintaining the original spirit of the period--enthusiasm for invation and a passionate commitment to intellectual inquiry--Colpitt provides an excellent documentary history that is both thorough and npartisan. Using a metacritical approach that embraces critical writings of the artists themselves, interviews by herself and the others, and a generous sampling of illustrations, Colpitt sets foth the issues and arguments and identifies key concepts that are crucial to an understanding of Minimal art. These include the frequent use of industrial materials and techniques; nrelational principles of composition; and theoretical issues of scale, presence and thatricality. Also discussed are issues of abstraction, illusion, and reductionism as revealed in the writing and artistic productions of such leading invators as Frank Stella, Donald Judd, and Robert Morris, among others. An appendix lists major exhibitions and reviews.
