Originating in America in the late 1960s Minimalism is one of the key movements in twentieth-century art, which has had an enormous impact on subsequent artists, architects, composers and designers. It aimed at reducing sculpture and painting to its most essential forms. Through the work of its key practitioners such as Carl Andre, Dan Flavin, Donald Judd, Sol leWitt and Robert Morris, this book examines the defining characteristics - and the debates - of the art belonging to movement. Although all these clean-edged works can be identified by certain recurring elements - symmetry, repetition, seriality and factory production - this book documents the surprising variety of work produced within these rigid confines. Alongside images of the key works and the historical exhibitions of Minimalism, author James Meyer presents the sides in the debate around Minimalism from the 1960s to the present, with artists' statements, reviews and commentary.
