Anna Chave on Biography: Carl Andre


​Art historian Anna Chave has written extensively about gender, feminism, and the reception and interpretation of art in the 20th century. Author of the instrumental essay “Minimalism and the Rhetoric of Power,” Chave has studied the contours and implications of Minimalism in depth, from how it reached its height during a time of global political unrest in the 1960s, to the men who represented it: Carl Andre, Donald Judd, Robert Morris, and Richard Serra. This lecture is presented on the occasion of Carl Andre: Sculpture as Place, 1958-2010.
