Glossary

›Minimal Art‹

 

The term Minimal Art is used to refer to a movement in art that was largely inspired by American artists in New York at the beginning of the 1960s. Some of the movement’s main exponents include Carl Andre, Dan Flavin, Donald Judd and Sol LeWitt. While no formal links of association existed among the artists, their works distinguish themselves in terms of reduced geometric forms, serial arrangements and the use of industrial materials, such as aluminum, steel, Plexiglas, etc. These features reflect a refusal to intentionally convey meaning. Instead of referring to the world, the works are (now only) a part of it.
