9780253354990: Minimalism: Origins

In the first part of the book, ""Paint"", Edward Strickland shows how Minimalists rethought abstract art -- with non-gestural color-field painting, ""invisible"" and brilliant monochromes, and neo-Dadaist anti-art of pure white panels.

In the second part, ""Sound"", the author turns his attention to La Monte Young's long-tone compositions and drone works of the Theatre of Eternal Music, the effect of foreign and nonclassical American musics on Terry Riley's motoric repetition, Steve Reich's formulation of phasing technique, and Philip Glass's unison modules.

In ""Space"", Strickland looks at Minimal sculpture and its critical reception. He then discusses Minimalist tendencies in dance, film, and literature, as well as the incorporation of once-shocking Minimalist vocabulary into mass culture, from fashion to advertising.

From the Back Cover:

""The death of Minimalism is announced regularly, which may be the surest testimonial to its staying power"". This is the opening sentence of Edward Strickland's study, the first to examine in detail Minimalist tendencies in the plastic arts and music. The term Minimalism appeared in the mid-1960s, primarily with reference to the stripped-down sculpture of artists like Robert Morris and Donald Judd, both of whom detested the word. In the late seventies it gained widespread currency when applied to the repetitive music popularized by Steve Reich and Philip Glass. In the first part of the book, ""Paint"", Strickland shows how Minimalism offered a rethinking of the main schools of abstract art to mid-century. Within Abstract Expressionism Barnett Newman opposed the stylistic complexity of confessional action painting with non-gestural, color-field painting. Ad Reinhardt and Ellsworth Kelly reconceived the rhythmic construction of earlier Geometrical Abstraction in ""invisible"" and brilliant monochromes respectively; and Robert Rauschenberg created Dadaist anti-art in pure white panels. Next, Strickland surveys Minimal music from La Monte Young's long-tone composions of the fifties to his drone works of the Theatre of Eternal Music. He examines the effect of foreign and nonclassical American musics on Terry Riley's motoric repetition developed from his tape experimentation, Steve Reich's formulation of phasing technique; and Philip Glass's unison modules. The third part of the book treats the development of Minimal sculpture and its critical reception. Strickland also discusses analogous Minimalist tendencies in dance, film, and literature as well as the incorporation of once-shocking Minimalistvocabulary into mass culture from fashion to advertising. Investigating the origins of Minimalism in postwar American culture, Strickland redefines it as a movement the developed radically reductive stylistic innovations in numerous media over the third quarter of the twentieth century.

Review:

... a landmark work, the first attempt to write a pre-history of minimalism that embraces all the arts. Its importance cannot be overestimated." --K. Robert Schwarz, Institute for Studies in American Music "All told, this book is mandatory reading for anyone who wishes to understand the history and nature of minimalism." --i/e NINE
