The Jewish Museum presents Other Primary Structures

The Jewish Museum presents a major exhibition of sculpture from the 1960s featuring the work of artists from Latin America, Asia, Africa, the Middle East, and Eastern Europe, much of which has rarely been seen in the United States. Other Primary Structures revisits the premise of and builds upon the Museum’s seminal 1966 exhibition Primary Structures: Younger American and British Sculptors, the first American museum exhibition to survey the style now known as Minimalism. Primary Structures introduced the public to such artists as Carl Andre, Dan Flavin, Donald Judd, Sol LeWitt, Walter De Maria, Robert Morris, Anne Truitt, and others—figures unknown at the time but soon to become synonymous with a radically new approach to sculpture. Nearly 50 years later, Other Primary Structures will revisit this formative moment in art history while also reexamining the period from today’s far more global perspective.

Other Primary Structures will be presented in two parts as follows: Others 1, on view from March 14 to May 18, will examine work created between 1960 and 1967; Others 2, on view from May 25 to August 3, will present work created between 1967 and 1970, some of which was directly influenced by the 1966 Primary Structures exhibition at The Jewish Museum.
