Description Global conceptualism: points of origin 1950s-1980s

Tent. New York, Queens Museum of Art, 28-04-1999, 29-08-1999 ; Minneapolis, Walker Art Center, 19-12-1999, 05-03-2000 ; Miami, Miami Art Museum, 15-09-2000, 26-11-2000. - Tentoonstellingscatalogus. De tentoonstelling is een poging het conceptualisme te documenteren als wereldwijd fenomeen dat tegelijkertijd en onafhankelijk op verschillende plaatsen ontstond in antwoord op specifiek plaatselijke omstandigheden. Met werk van o.a. Marina Abramovic (Belgrado 1946), Genpei Akasegawa (Yokohama 1937), Giovanni Anselmo (Borgo Franco d'Ivrea 1934), Eleanor Antin (New York 1935) en Billy Apple (Barrie Bates 1935). - This book documents the most important exhibition of conceptual art ever undertaken, and surveys with decidedly international scope the development of idea-based art in the works of over 100 artists, from Australia, Asia, Latin America, Africa, Western and Eastern Europe, and North America. Included are scholarly essays which consider on a region-by-region basis the spread of conceptual art, as well as the "moment of rupture" when artists turned from object-based to idea-based art. Through both its text and its numerous reproductions, this book shows the degree to which the language of conceptual art is global, and its extensive look at non-Western artists redresses the relative invisibility of these places in most histories of conceptualism
