Minimalism, Batchelor, David

Minimalism
Cambridge Cambridge University Press; Movements in Modern Art Ser. 1997 0521627591 / 9780521627597 Paperback Fine 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall 
80 pp., illus. (some col.), biblio., index; 25 cm. Tight, clean copy. "Many people have difficulty appreciating Carl Andre's 'Equivalent VIII,' consisting of 120 bricks, as a work of art. This publication shows not only how the bricks are indeed sculpture, but that Minimalist works such as this present some of the most interesting and imaginative work of the 1960s. Minimalism emerged and developed as a reaction against the emotiveness of Abstract Expressionism. Although most of the artists involved did not regard themselves as part of a group, there are certain key factors that define Minimalist work: it is abstract, three-dimensional, modular, serial, geometric, preconceived in design and industrial in execution. This introduction examines the implications of these characteristics, looking in particular at the work of five key artists: Carl Andre, Dan Flavin, Donald Judd, Sol LeWitt, and Robert Morris." - Publisher. Contents: Introduction; 1. After Abstract Expressionism; 2. Andre, Flavin, Judd, LeWitt; 3. Critical interpretations; 4. Revisions and continuations.

ix, 164 pp., illus., bib. notes, index; 26 cm. Tight, clean copy. First paperback edition. "In making light his primary medium, Dan Flavin (1933-1996) established himself as one of the most innovative and significant artists of the minimalist movement. A new generation encountered Flavin’s work through the critically acclaimed exhibition Dan Flavin: A Retrospective, which opened in October 2004 at the National Gallery of Art, Washington. Dan Flavin: New Light includes essays that respond to this exhibition and to the renewed interest in Flavin’s work and its place in 20th-century art. In this volume, six leading scholars of contemporary art consider the ambiguities and multiple resonances of Flavin's light works. Each addresses the ontological complexity of the work--object-based, yet 'situational,' and painterly in its deployment of colored light--within the insistently sculptural world of minimalism. The book's contributors interpret this tension by exploring Flavin's early assemblages, the relationship of drawing to his installation practice, the specificity of his materials and their operation in actual space, and the openly ambivalent place of Flavin's work within the history of late modernism. / Jeffrey Weiss is Curator and Head of Modern and Contemporary Art at the National Gallery of Art, Washington. Briony Fer is Reader in the History of Art at University College London. Hal Foster is Townsend Martin '17 Professor of Art and Archaeology and department chair at Princeton University. Jeremy Gilbert-Rolfe, critic and painter, teaches in the graduate program at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California.

Chicago, July 1-Oct. 30, 2005. Firm binding, clean inside copy. OVERSIZE! No priority/air, except by special arrangement. The Minimalist sculptor who pioneered the use of fluorescent lighting in art. "One might not think of light as a matter of fact, but I do. And it is, as I said, as plain and open and direct an art as you will ever find."-Dan Flavin, 1987. "Dan Flavin (1933-1996) is considered one of the most important and innovative artists of the late twentieth century. The simplicity and systematic character of his extraordinary work, along with his relentless exploration and ingenious discovery of an art of light, established him as a progenitor and chief exponent of Minimalism. Uniquely situated outside the mediums of painting and sculpture, the majority of Flavin's work after 1963 consists of art made from light. This landmark book-the first retrospective publication of Flavin's art since 1969-includes around 45 of the artist's most important light works, beginning with a pivotal series of constructed boxes with attached incandescent or fluorescent lights, called "icons," made from 1961 to 1963. Works spanning Flavin's career are discussed in depth, including examples that integrate light with the surrounding space and show the particular characteristics of blended fluorescent light, large-scale installations, and constructed corridors. The book also includes reproductions of Flavin's drawings, which show his thought processes and working methods. New scholarship and interpretation of Flavin's work appears in the form of three critical essays by experts, an extensive chronology, comprehensive bibliography, and exhibition history. In addition, Flavin's seminal text '...in daylight or cool white, an autobiographical sketch,' originally published in Artforum in 1965, is included. Exquisitely designed and produced, with many new stunning color reproductions, Dan Flavin: A Retrospective captures the brilliance of this artist's contribution to and challenges of the art world and will be the authoritative volume on Flavin for years to come. This book is published in conjunction with a major exhibition on view at the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C. (October 3, 2004 to January 9, 2005) Museum of Modern Art, Forth Worth (February 25 to June 5, 2005) Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago (July 1 to October 30, 2005) and other venues to be announced. / Tiffany Bell has served as project director of the Dan Flavin catalogue raisonne since 1998; Michael Govan is director of Dia Art Foundation; Earl A. Powell III is director of the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.; Brydon Smith is former curator of twentieth-century art at the National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa; Jeffrey Weiss is head of the department of modern and contemporary art at the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C." - Publisher.
