Minimal Potlitics: Performativity and Minimalism in Recent American Art explores the complex relationship between style and politics. The exhibition presents five artists—Hans Haacke, Mary Kelly, Robert Morris, Adrian Piper, and Yvonne Rainer—whose work evolved from a more minimal, formal aesthetic in the 1960s to a more overtly ideological point-of-view.
Artists: Hans Haacke, Mary Kelly, Adrian Piper, Robert Morris, Yvonne Rainer
