Subjective Histories of Sculpture II furthers SculptureCenter’s exploration of how contemporary artists think about sculpture – its contingencies and its legacies. Three artists at various stages of their careers have been invited to present their own take on art history. They cite as examples specific works, bodies of work, texts, or even personal anecdotes – taken from inside and outside cultural production, and inside and outside “art”. These subjective, incomplete, partial, or otherwise eclectic histories question assumptions and examine ways of viewing the old and the new. They also propose structures that lend themselves to understanding sculpture’s evolving strategies through an observation of behaviors, dreams, and mistakes over the course of human civilization.

Robert Morris was born in 1931, in Kansas City. His work has been influential since the early 1960s for his experiments in sculpture, dance, and process art but also for his seminal texts and essays within these fields. His sculptural work spans minimalist sculpture, earthworks, neo-dadaism, and conceptual art. Considered one of the most influential American artists of our time, his exhibitions and survey shows include Robert Morris: Recent Works at the Whitney Museum of American Art in 1970, and Body and Mind at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York, in 1994, that traveled to the Deichtorhallen in Hamburg and the Musée National d’Art Moderne in Paris. Robert Morris currently lives and works in New York.
