Minimalism was a turning point in the history of art. Through the use of simple, geometric forms and non-traditional materials, Minimalism shifted the way that we experience art:it made the physical encounter with the art work, and the space it occupies, increasingly important. This movement has had a profound influence not only on the visual arts, but also on music, performance, fashion, architecture and design.

 

Minimalism: Space. Light. Object. looks at the emergence, development and legacies of Minimalism from the 1950s to the present day. It considers how artists in Asia, the United Statesand Europe have explored ideas of presence and absence, often informed by Asian philosophies such as Zen Buddhism. The exhibition features major works by over 60 artists, including Donald Judd, Mark Rothko, Mona Hatoum, Anish Kapoor, Ai Weiwei, Olafur Eliasson and Haegue Yang.

 

This exhibition is organised by National Gallery Singapore in collaboration with ArtScience Museum, Singapore. Special exhibition ticket required.
