Who’s Afraid of Red, Yellow and Blue?

Taking Barnett Newman’s seminal 1966 painting as its starting point, this exhibition catalogue collects work by 14 monumentally important international artists, including Newman himself, who were responsible for brining Minimalism to the fore. Beginning with Dan Flavin’s neon works, and including monochromes, color field paintings and contrast studies by Gunther Forg, Ellsworth Kelly, Imi Knoebel, Yves Klein, Morris Louis, Kenneth Noland, Blinky Palermo, Stephen Prina, Ad Reinhardt, Gerhard Richter, Mark Rothko and Heimo Zobernig, this volume also contains personal statements by or about each of the artists, all very well chosen and unusually intimate. Transcendent, exuberant, sober, poetic, witty, sublime or dogmatic–the works collected here answer Newman’s titular question with a resounding, “Not I.”
