Abstract :
Focuses on the now commonplace view that Minimalism, as a set of art practices and theoretical maxims, inaugurated a turn towards spectator-centered heuristics within contemporary art of recent decades. Ross both investigates this claim and asks what are the ethical and theoretical implications of spectator-centeredness for our encounters with works of art. In the process, Ross proposes that the work of Mikala Dwyer, which has been read by critics in the terms summarized above, stages another way of thinking about our engagement by art objects. Ross cites references in Dwyer's art to the work of Eva Hesse. ;
