Minimalism, one of the most significant movements of late twentieth-century art, developed in the United States primarily in New York and California in the late 1950s. This exhibition examines works by artists from subsequent generations who have responded to the physical characteristics of early minimalist works to reveal a poetic, personalized response to elemental compositions and sculptural form.
Drawn from the permanent collection, Poetic Minimalism features works by Joe Goode, Margaret Evangeline, Jasper Johns, Tom Joyce, Cheonae Kim, Robert Mangold, Olivier Mosset, Beverly Pepper, Theodoros Stamos, and Adja Yunkers. This exhibition is curated by Dr. Julie Sasse, Chief Curator and Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art.
