Press Release

Minimalism & Beyond

September 13 - October 18, 2017

Mnuchin Gallery will open its fall season with Minimalism & Beyond, an exhibition exploring Minimalism and its legacy in contemporary art from the second half of the twentieth century through the present day. Opening September 13 and on view through October 18, 2017, it will be accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue authored by Pac Pobric.

 

The exhibition will present Minimalist masterworks of the 1960s alongside painting and sculpture of the following decades that both elaborate upon and disrupt Minimalism’s formal language to a diverse range of ends, from the playful and the personal to the subversive and the political. Taking as its starting point iconic works by Carl Andre, Dan Flavin, Donald Judd, Agnes Martin, Robert Ryman, and Frank Stella, the exhibition continues with Postminimalist figures such as Eva Hesse, Robert Morris, On Kawara, and Bruce Nauman. It carries on with works from the 1980s and 90s by artists including Robert Gober, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, David Hammons, Jeff Koons, Cady Noland, and Christopher Wool. The exhibition culminates with contemporary examples by Carol Bove, Wade Guyton, Rashid Johnson, Glenn Ligon, and Rudolf Stingel, artists who employ the supposedly "neutral" aesthetic tropes of Minimalism to explore the politics of race, class, and technology.

#THELIST: 9 EXHIBITIONS YOU MUST SEE THIS FALL
September 21, 2017

This exhibition is centered around Minimalism’s legacy from the 1960s to today. Iconic works by Carl Andre, Dan Flavin, Donald Judd, Agnes Martin, and Robert Ryman will be juxtaposed with more contemporary works by Jeff Koons and Urs Fischer, among others. Drawing connections across decades, it examines the ways in which artists have interpreted—and disrupted—Minimalism’s formal language.
