The Language of Less (Then and Now)

This impressive catalogue accompanies the MCA exhibition The Language of Less (Then and Now), which is inspired by the museum's rich holdings of Minimalist and post-Minimalist work from the 1960s and 1970s. The exhibition is divided into two distinct parts, one devoted to a fresh reinstallation of this historical material (featuring artists such as Carl Andre, Donald Judd, Sol LeWitt, and Richard Serra), including recent acquisitions; and a second showcasing five contemporary artists (Leonor Antunes, Carol Bove, Jason Dodge, Gedi Sibony, and Oscar Tuazon) who are working within the stylistic language of their forebears, albeit with entirely new content and concerns.

Featuring essays by the MCA's James W. Alsdorf Chief Curator Michael Darling and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago's David Raskin, the catalogue also includes biographies of each artist, stunning detail photographs of key works, and a die-cut cover.

Hardcover, 64 pages, 8" x 11", MCA Chicago, 2011. The exhibition The Language of Less (Then and Now) was presented at the MCA October 8, 2011-March 25, 2012.
