Drawings by one of the twentieth century’s most intellectually challenging artists.
While Robert Morris is probably best known for his leading role in defining what is known today as Minimalist sculpture, his diverse and vast contributions to the world of sculpture, performance, process art, earthworks, and critical theory have established him as one of the most intellectually challenging artists of his time. This exhibition catalogue brings together thirty years of Morris’s drawings and reveals a fascinating portrait of a compelling thinker and a complex artist. Included are essays by exhibition curators Christophe Cherix and Nadine Wasserman that examine these rarely discussed drawings and place them in the wider context of Morris’s oeuvre. This publication is the first in a series that highlights the work of prominent artists who currently live and work in the Hudson Valley and Catskill regions.
