In the style of a cool white cube, the Minimal Art/Conceptual Art chapter forms a striking contrast to the other exhibition rooms. While Minimal Art emphasizes the reduction of forms, materials, and colors to the essential, Conceptual Art focuses on the idea or concept behind the work and questions the traditional notion of art as a material object. Both movements have had a lasting influence on the art world since the 1960s and have contributed to the further development of artistic thought. The rather austere aesthetic, dominated by white, gray, and black hues, resonates with a dry humor that we explore through selected artistic positions.
During the tour, the chapter Minimal-Conceptual and its realization in the HALLE FÜR KUNST and the Neue Galerie will be explored through selected artistic positions, and the curatorial and design concept will be explained. Here we encounter Robert Breer’s movable walls, an idiosyncratic vacuum cleaner by Roman Signer, and the runway of Wienerwürstchen by Peter Fischli and David Weiss, just to name a few.
The tour begins at 5 p.m. at Neue Galerie Graz and continues afterwards at HALLE FÜR KUNST.
