Physical Fact/Fleeting Idea: Minimalism and Conceptual Art
5,000 Years of Contemporary Art Lecture Series
Saturday, January 15, 2011, 11:15 am
FREE for Gallery Members / $10 for non-members
With Associate Curator of Education Nancy Spector
Is it possible for a work of art to refer to nothing but itself? How much can be eliminated before nothing is left? Come find out about artists who don't always make their own work and artists for whom the idea—rather than the object—is supreme. Artists discussed will include Carl Andre, Donald Judd, Sol LeWitt, Robert Mangold, Agnes Martin, and Robert Morris.
The 5,000 Years of Contemporary Art Lecture Series continues through March 12, 2011. Throughout the series, Curator of Education Mariann Smith, Associate Curator of Education Nancy Spector, and guest speakers will use the Gallery's Collection and other selected works to tell the story of art from ancient times through today.
Doors for all lectures open at 11 am.
