DESCRIPTION

When an original statement—in this case, Minimal Art of nineteen sixties era New York— migrates from its place of birth and enters into wider circulation, some of its origninal meanings are often garbled if not lost entirely, no matter how exacting the translation. Yet—and more important for our purposes —other meanings are also gathered up and incorporated as a powerful idea travels from there to here. Found in Translation at Cardwell Jimmerson Contemporary Art tests this hypothesis in an exhibition combining period artworks in the Minimalist idiom from Southern California, with related proposals and historical documents.
