Call for Art: Bare Essentials: Minimalism in the 21st Century

Artwork by Agnes Martin
Artwork by Agnes Martin

 

Minimalism is a specific movement identified with the evolution of post-World War II art. The movement pioneers – among them Frank Stella and Carl Andre – felt that “art excludes the unnecessary”. These artists – including others such as Sol LeWitt, Dan Flavin, Agnes Martin and others – were rooted in the reductive aesthetic aspects of modernism. It was this reductive element which these artists pursued in their movement away from the prevalence of Abstract Expressionism.

“Bare Essentials: Minimalism in the 21st Century” is an exhibition that will explore how women artists are influenced by these earlier ideologies, and how they attempt to make them their own. All media.
