A Fruitmarket Gallery touring exhibition curated by Melissa E. Feldman

This exhibition brings together the work of an international group of contemporary artists whose work builds on terrain first explored by the California Light and Space artists of the 1960s and 1970s. At that time, artists such as Robert Irwin, James Turrell, Maria Nordman and Larry Bell, whose work features in Another Minimalism, were producing radical and ground-breaking work characterised by an interest in immateriality, site-specificity and the experiential. Yet their practices have often been overshadowed by the object-based minimalism of their East coast peers.

Another Minimalism is the first exhibition to recognise and examine the influence of Light and Space artists on a younger generation of artists including Tacita Dean, Olafur Eliasson and Spencer Finch. These artists use materials including glass, mirrors and coloured lights to alter the viewer’s perception of space and time.

Other artists represented in the exhibition include Uta Barth, Sarah Braman, Sam Falls, Jeppe Hein, Ann Veronica Janssens and James Welling.
