Overview

This exhibition celebrates one of the strengths of the BMA’s collection: contemporary drawings that combine an interest in pure, refined geometric form with a desire to use materials expressively. Anchoring the exhibition are four rare drawings by Eva Hesse, an artist associated with the Post-Minimalists, a term identifying artists of the 1960s and 70s who replaced the rigorous, industrially fabricated sculptural shapes associated with Minimalist artists like Donald Judd and Dan Flavin with handmade, individualized, and fluid approaches to minimal abstraction. The show also includes pieces by Hesse’s contemporaries, Mel Bochner, Brice Marden, Dorothea Rockburne, and Robert Smithson, but also extends the Post-Minimalist sensibility into recent years with examples by Tomma Abts, Roni Horn, and Meg Webster.
