About this item

Robert Irwin, one of the most influentialpostwar American artists and a pioneeringfigure of California Light and Space Art, isthe subject of this book that traces hisdevelopment and remarkable accomplishmentsin the 1960s. The first publication to focus exclusively on Irwin's extraordinarytrajectory during the 1960s, this book explores how theartist moved from creating small-scale abstract paintingsto temporary installations that responded to the specificcircumstances of a given site. During this relatively brief interval,Irwin methodically interrogated the most essential premises ofart and, in the process, ultimately redefined what a work of artcould be, proposing that art not be limited to objects but beconsidered a way of seeing. Through its discussion of Irwin'spaintings, sculptures, and his new site-conditioned scriminstallation created in response to the Hirshhorn's distinctiveround architecture, this publication immerses the reader in theartist's groundbreaking investigations into the nature of color,light, and perception. The essays offer fresh insights into Irwin'sart while highlighting his pivotal role in the broader aestheticdevelopments in the 1960s. The book also includes text by Irwin.
