Contemporary art gallery David Zwirner and its Hong Kong location unveils a new exhibition of work by four of the most heralded minimalist artists: Dan Flavin, Donald Judd, John McCracken and Fred Sandback. Each American artist is renowned for contributing significantly to the modern artistic developments of the late twentieth century.
With the minimalism movement having originated in New York and Los Angeles in the late ’60s, according to David Zwirner, it’s characterized by simplicity of form and a literal, objective approach. The featured artists’ works are showcased in a single room to allow visitors to experience and compare each artists’ individual approaches to reductive form, material, color, and space.
In particular, Dan Flavin primarily utilized fluorescent lamps to create installations of light and color, while Donald Judd produced sculptural objects that were self-referential like a series of stainless steel rectangular forms that are connected by a square.
Meanwhile, John McCracken combined minimalist sculpture with a playful Los Angeles sensibility that is expressed through color, form, and finish. The artist utilized industrial materials including plywood, sprayed lacquer and pigmented resin. Lastly, Fred Sandback is known for creating sculptures that outline planes and volumes in space.
The exhibition runs runs until December 21, and if you’re located near the area, visit the official address below.
