Riassunto: Robert Morris, a leading figure in postwar American art, is best known as a pioneer of minimalist sculpture, process art, and earthworks. Yet Morris has resisted affiliation with any one movement or style. An extraordinarily versatile artist, he has produced dances, performance pieces, prints, paintings, drawings, and installations, working with materials including plywood, felt, dirt, aluminum, steel mesh, fiberglass, and encaustic. Throughout his career, Morris has written influential critical essays, commenting on his own work as well as that of other artists, and exploring through text many of the theoretical concerns addressed in his artwork?about perception, materiality, space, and the process of artmaking. Have I Reasons presents seventeen of Morris?s essays, six of which have never been published before. Written over the past fifteen years, the essays, along with the volume?s many illustrations, provide an invaluable record of the recent thought of a major American artist.
The writings are arranged chronologically, beginning with ?Indiana Street,? a vivid autobiographical account of the artist?s early years in Kansas City, Missouri. Have I Reasons includes reflections on Morris?s own site-specific installations; transcripts of seminars he conducted in conjunction with exhibitions; and the textual element of The Birthday Boy, the two-screen video-and-sound piece he installed at the Galleria dell?Accademia in Florence, Italy, on the occasion of the five hundredth anniversary of Michelangelo?s David. Essays range from original interpretations of Cézanne?s Mont Sainte-Victoire paintings and Jasper Johns? early work to engagements with one of Morris?s most significant interlocutors, the philosopher Donald Davidson. Have I Reasons conveys not only Morris?s enduring deep interest in philosophy and issues of resemblance and representation but also his more recent turn toward directly addressing contemporary social and political issues such as corporate excess and preemptive belligerence.
Dall'editore: " Have I Reasons is the authoritative text for the study of Robert Morris's later work and for the historical reconsideration of his earlier work. Unrelentingly provocative and entertaining, the writings reflect his wonderfully quirky mind, his gift for narrative, his wide learning and curiosity, and his cool, laconic style combined with mordant outrage and irony."-- W. J. T. Mitchell, editor of Critical Inquiry and author of What Do Pictures Want?
"Robert Morris is one of the most important postwar American artists. Have I Reasons is a valuable resource for an understanding and reconsideration of his work and the postwar neo-avant-garde production in which it played such a pivotal role. Compared to his seminal earlier writings, those from the 1990s and beyond collected here are more insistently autobiographical, more overtly and straightforwardly political. This transformation is one that, at least in part, reflects a transformation in his visual art."--Branden W. Joseph, author of Random Order: Robert Rauschenberg and the Neo-Avant-Garde
