Maximum Impact: The Legacy of Minimalism - Part 2
Thursday, April 11, 5:00 a.m.
United States

This lecture series examines the powerful impact of minimalism on contemporary art, its steady influence on art practitioners, and our ironic relationship to its aesthetic and anti-aesthetic value. Despite its elite artistic valuation, minimalist art remains controversial; yet Minimalism continues to provide young artists with the principles of objectivism, seriality, industrial finish, and new materials, and the minimalist ethic provides a context for some of today’s most significant art.
