(silver paper-covered boards; no dust jacket, as issued) [minor bumping to a couple of corners, shallow dents at bottom edges of both covers, general light surface wear to covers]. The book, and the art exhibit it was published to accompany, look "at the history of post-World War II abstract art, examining the role of radically simplified form and systematic strategies in vanguard work from Central and Western Europe and North and South America. An essay rather than a survey, [the exhibition/book] tracks parallels, intersections, and divergences in the evolution of what, by the late 1960s, had become an expansive international discourse. At the same time, it questions the precedence often given to U.S. minimalism in previous accounts of the period." Includes contributions by: Valerie L. Hillings, Miklos Peternak, Brandon LaBelle, Peter Frank, Ines Katzenstein and Aleca Le Blanc.
