Robert Morris : object sculpture, 1960-1965 by Jeffrey S Weiss( Book )

"This is a systematic catalogue of work by Robert Morris from the crucial early period of his career. It concerns some one-hundred "object sculptures" that dating between 1960 and 1965: plaques, containers, and assisted or simulated readymades of wood, Sculpmetal, and lead. These objects were produced concurrently with a series of large, blank constructed forms in gray-painted plywood - canonical works of Minimal art. Here, the smaller sculptures are addressed for the first time as an overall body of work. The present study departs from past literature, where scholarly attention is repeatedly paid to the same handful of selected objects. The catalogue and text seek to map the internal logic of the object sculptures: to acknowledge that they represent part of a complex, integral practice. Without displacing the foundational significance of certain sculptures to the emergence of Conceptualism, this treatment directs new attention to the material fabrication of the works. By extension, it examines the significance of "process" as it pertains both to the making of the sculptures themselves and, through iconography, to the body. The factor of process is one with which the artist specifically identified the significance of the object sculptures - which he referred to as "process type objects". Fabrication and medium thus join more established elements, such as language, systems of measurement, and time, as the work's chief concerns. The key significance to Morris of the work of Marcel Duchamp is also recast in this context. Produced with the cooperation of the artist, this catalogue contains much new information, and includes a substantial interview in which Morris reflects on the circumstances and significance of the work from the vantage of the present"--

"This book exhibition--also known as The Xerox Book--was organized and published by Seth Siegelaub in 1968. Both presenting a range of artists associated with Siegelaub's curatorial practice and utilizing unconventional modes of exhibition, this book marks [the] ongoing attempt by Siegelaub to show work outside of the gallery setting, and his first time showing an exhibition in book form. Furthermore, Siegelaub asked each artist in the exhibition to create 25 pages of work that responded to the photocopy format. Though the Xerox process proved financially unfeasible--the works ultimately being reproduced through the more conventional printing press--the book continued to be referred to as "The Xerox Book," preserving its association with the then-new photocopy technology"--PrimaryInformation.org website, viewed June 14, 2016

5 editions published in 2010 in Spanish and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Análisis de la trayectoria artística de Robert Morris, cuya obra abarca gran número de preocupaciones y temáticas: la experiencia del cuerpo, el movimiento, el proceso, el tiempo real, la reivindicación de la condición social del artista como trabajador, la relación entre visión y ceguera, entre texto e imagen, la memoria, la muerte, la catástrofe o la melancolía. Cuestiones en todos los casos atravesadas por una crítica tanto al modernismo y su concepción del arte como una parte de la vida, como a la modernidad entera en tanto que sistema opresor, disciplinario y deshumanizador. El autor se centra en cuatro obras: Waterman switch (Cambio de barquero), Observatory (Observatorio), The rationed years (Los años racionados) y Blind time drawings (Dibujos del tiempo ciego)
