Physical Fact/Fleeting Idea: Minimalism and Conceptual Art

Yesterday was the thirteenth lecture in the 150 Years of Contemporary Art Lecture Series focusing on Physical Fact/Fleeting Idea: Minimalism and Conceptual Art at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery.

Maquette for proposed installation at Albright-Knox Art Gallery
"What can you eliminate from sculpture and painting and have it still be art? Is it possible for a work of art to refer to nothing but itself? Must an artist use his or her own hands to make an artwork? Which is more important: the object or the idea? Come and view the results of this debate through the work of artists such as Donald Judd, Carl Andre, Sol LeWitt, Robert Morris, Agnes Martin, and Robert Mangold, who pondered these very questions in the 1960s and 1970s."-source
