Description

... a landmark work, the first attempt to write a pre-history of minimalism that embraces all the arts. Its importance cannot be overestimated." —K. Robert Schwarz, Institute for Studies in American Music

All told, this book is mandatory reading for anyone who wishes to understand the history and nature of minimalism." —i/e NINE

The death of Minimalism is announced regularly, which may be the surest testimonial to its staying power," says Strickland in this study, the first to examine in detail Minimalist tendencies in the plastic arts and music. Investigating the origins of Minimalism in postwar American culture, Strickland redefines it as a movement that developed radically reductive stylistic innovations in numerous media. A survey with wit.
