Post-minimalism

DEFINITION

Meaning after Minimalism, the term refers to a movement beginning the late 1960s that was a general reaction of artists against Minimalism and its closed geometric forms and had somewhat more content, or open forms, than content-free Minimalism. "Artforum" writer, Robert Pincus-Witten coined the term in an article he wrote about Eva Hesse, which was published in the November, 1971 issue. Other artists categorized as Post-Minimalist are Richard Serra, Martin Puryear, Joel Shapiro and Tony Cragg.

The term Post-Minimalism was coined by Robert Pincus-Witten in Artforum, November, 1971, "Eva Hesse: Post-Minimalism into Sublime." Pincus-Witten pointed out the more embellished and pictorial approach Richard Serra took in his cast-lead pieces, and Eva Hesse in her pliable hangings.
