A fascinating offshoot of minimalism, Light and Space art emerged in California in the 1970s and continues to be influential today. Another Minimalism traces the growth and development of the school, with its interest in site-specific installation, color, immateriality, and situationist and participatory art—all in all a very different kind of minimalism from the austere, mathematical abstractions that the term usually calls to mind.
Looking at the work of major contemporary artists like Tacita Dean, Olafur Eliasson, Carol Bove, and Spencer Finch, Feldman rewrites the story of minimalism’s impact on later artists, revealing the powerful but largely unrecognized influence of West Coast artists like Robert Irwin, James Turrell, and Maria Nordman. Richly illustrated, Another Minimalism offers a convincing new angle on the work and legacy of key twentieth-century artists.
