Early Works: Flavin, Judd, LeWitt, Serra

Zwirner & Wirth will present a group of major sculptures and related drawings dating from 1963 to 1971, by four key figures of the Minimalist art movement.

In the 1960s, Dan Flavin, Donald Judd, Sol Lewitt and Richard Serra all set out, with their own unique use of materials and conceptual strategies, to strip the art object of its inheritance of illusionism and representation. In reaction to the Abstract Expressionist movement, the Minimalist artists produced objects rooted in Empiricism. They set out to challenge the preceding generation's nature-derived imagery by creating works that rejected their preoccupation with mythical narratives, allegory and spiritual theories in favor of perceptual and physical experience.
