Robert Morris is best known for his contributions to minimalist sculpture and antiform art, as well as for a number of influential theoretical writings on art. This collection of his essays from the 1960s to the 1980s addresses wide-ranging intellectual and philosophical problems of sculpture, raising issues of materiality, size and shape, anti-illusionism and perceptual conditions. Included are the influential "Notes on Sculpture", which in four parts articulates the shifting terrains of sculpture during the 1960s, tracing its movement from the gestalt-driven unitary forms of minimalism, through permutable pieces, to the formally dispersed process-oriented antiform art that appeared later in the decade. Morris's landmark essay on "Anti Form", which marked a departure from art as object is also featured. In the later essays, Morris looks at modern art's development in America, based on a framework of strategies produced by Duchamp, Pollock, and other key figures. And in a refiguration of an interview with Roger Denson, Morris acts out a subtle mockery of himself and his art, collapsing the high seriousness of the intended format into a playful scheme.
