Robert Morris

Robert Morris (b. 1931, Kansas City, Missouri; d. 2018, Kingston, New York) is a major figure in the history of Minimal, Postminimal and Conceptual Art. He was also a prominent critical voiceduring this period, making a significant contribution to the theoretical discourse of art after 1960. His first exhibition at the Green Gallery in 1963 marked the emergence of Minimalism, a movement brought to broad public attention in the survey exhibition Primary Structures, presented at the Jewish Museum in New York in 1966, where Morris’s work was shown with sculpture by Carl Andre, Dan Flavin, Donald Judd and Sol LeWitt, among others. Morris also made important contributions to the development of Land Art, Process Art, performance, and avant-garde film. Most recently, his works have been the subject of large-scale monographic exhibitions at the Institut Valencià d’Art Modern (2011); Museum Abteiberg, Mönchengladbach (2009); Tate Modern, London (2009); Museum of Modern Art, New York (2008); Museum Ludwig, Cologne (2002); and Musée d’art contemporain de Lyon (2000).
