Opening Robert Morris. The Perceiving Body


Public opening to the exhibition Robert Morris. The Perceiving Body.

Mudam Luxembourg announces a major, new monographic exhibition of the early work of Robert Morris (b. 1931, Kansas City, Missouri; d. 2018, Kingston, New York). An important figure in the history of American sculpture after the Second World War, Morris was a chief proponent of Minimal, Postminimal and Conceptual art. This exhibition, which was conceived in dialogue with the artist before his death in 2018, offers a rare opportunity to view significant works of the 1960s and ’70s, including examples borrowed from major public collections as well as the artist’s estate.
