Another Minimalism

Finished off the year with a visit to the Fruitmarket Gallery to see 'Another Minimalism: Art After California Light and Space'.

"Bringing the work of a select group of current-generation artists together with that of two pioneers of West Coast American minimalism, this exhibition examines the impact of California Light and Space art on artists working today.

Robert Irwin and Larry Bell are two of California’s best-known artists. In this exhibition, two of their signature objects – one of Irwin’s iconic discs and a Larry Bell cube – signal the radical and ground-breaking art made in California in the 1960s and 70s"

It is a really stunning, colourful exhibition, and myself and my friend Abby (pictured above) both came away brimming with inspiration. One of the video exhibits in particular (must find out the name of the piece) had us both transfixed - enough to watch it fully through 3 times in a row, which for me was a big surprise as video art isn't usually my cup of tea. The exhibition is on until 21st February 2016 and I will definitely be back.
