Less is More: Minimal and Post-Minimal Art in Australia [withdrawal]

Focusing on the Australian context, this exhibition will explore the late modernist movement of Minimal Art, the debates it provoked in the 1960s and 1970s, its broader intersection with the Post-Minimal tendencies of Conceptual, Process, and Anti-form art, and the re-working of Minimalism by contemporary artists today. A wide range of works by Australian artists will be presented—painting, sculpture, video—alongside a few key examples of work by American Minimal and post-minimal artists from the 1960s drawn from Australian state and national collections.
