minimal art

(c. 1960–) A rejection of the aesthetic qualities of art in favor of the physical reality of the art object. Materials used are usually non-traditional and often in geometrically arranged units, as in the sculptor Carl Andre’s notorious Equivalent VIII (1966), which consisted of 120 fired bricks arranged in a solid rectangle on London’s Tate Gallery floor.
