Anti-Illusion : Procedures / Materials

description

Exhibition catalogue published in conjunction with show held May 19 - July 6, 1969. Texts by curators James Monte and Marcia Tucker. "The radical nature of many works in this exhibition depends less on the fact that new materials are being used by the artists than the fact that the acts of conceiving and placing the pieces take precedence over the object qualities of the works..." -- from James Monte's catalogue essay. "Our approach to works of art has been based on the assumptions about the nature of art. One of these assumptions has been that art creates order from chaos of experience; it is presumed that our understanding of a work of art is equivalent to our grasp of the formal or conceptual order inherent in it. The present exhibition challenges this supposition. We are offered an art that presents itself as disordered, chaotic, or anarchic..." -- from Marcia Tucker's catalogue essay. Artists include Carl Andre, Michael Asher, Lynda Benglis, William Bollinger, John Duff, Rafael Ferrer, Robert Fiore (who took the in-process photos for the catalogue), Phil Glass, Eva Hesse, Neil Jenney, Barry Le Va, Robert Lobe, Robert Morris, Bruce Nauman, Steve Reich, Robert Rohm, Robert Ryman, Richard Serra, Joel Shapiro, Michael Snow, Keith Sonnier, and Richard Tuttle.
