This event has ended.

Elemental, an exhibition comprised of minimalist and post-minimalist painting and sculpture that lays bare the foundational components of these consecutive 20th-century movements. Spanning 1963–1981, each work in the exhibition demonstrates a conceptually robust reduction of both form and content, drawing renewed attention to the nuances of the artistic process, the visceral potential of materials, and the organizational structure of a composition.

By way of geometric abstraction, singular motifs, monochromatic palettes and the embracing of repetition, this seminal group of artists eschewed the gestural individualism of mid-century Abstract Expressionism and paved the way for a new understanding of art-making.

Featured in the exhibition are significant works by Carl Andre (b. 1935), Daniel Buren (b. 1938), Simon Hantaï (1922-2008), François Morellet (1926-2016), Olivier Mosset (b. 1944), Richard Nonas (b. 1936), Carol Rama (1918-2015), Robert Ryman (1930-2019), and Bernar Venet (b. 1941.)
