This spring, The Jewish Museum will present a major exhibition of
sculpture from the 1960s featuring the work of artists from Latin America, Asia,
Africa, the Middle East, and Eastern Europe, much of which has rarely been seen
in the United States. Other Primary Structures revisits the premise of and builds
upon the Museum’s seminal 1966 exhibition Primary Structures: Younger American and
British Sculptors, the first American museum exhibition to survey the style now
known as Minimalism. Primary Structures introduced the public to such artists as
Carl Andre, Dan Flavin, Donald Judd, Sol LeWitt, Walter De Maria, Robert Morris,
and others-figures unknown at the time but soon to become synonymous with a radically
new approach to sculpture. Nearly 50 years later, Other Primary Structures, on view
from March 14 – August 3, 2014, will revisit this formative moment in art history
while also reexamining the period from today’s far more global perspective.
