Maximum Impact: The Legacy of Minimalism - Part 1
Wednesday, November 28
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.
