Being and Circumstance: Notes Toward a Conditional Art
Being and Circumstance: Notes Toward a Conditional Art by Robert Irwin
Robert Irwin, who is one of the most important artists of this era, was a seminal figure in 'Light and Space' art. He began as an Abstract Expressionist painter in the 1950s, and was for some time (but is no longer) an artist who produced no art objects. Irwin's philosophical and aesthetic theories are so far-reaching that the art world recognizes that his questions about perception come to bear upon the definition of art itself.
