    Physical Fact/Fleeting Idea: Minimalism and Conceptual Art

    Saturday, January 15, 2011, 11:15 am

    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.
