John McCracken

John McCracken died last Friday in New York at the age of 76. Among the leading historic exponents of the American Minimalism, the Californian artist viewed art as a means of aesthetic and spiritual emancipation and his works as prototypes for a world to come, one dominated by pure thought and an absolute form of beauty. Convinced that art can give form to a hidden dimension of matter and the universe, McCracken, through the uniqueness of his artistic vision, revealed the true complexity of what we generically call “Minimalism”.
After the jump, an overview of his current retrospective at Castello di Rivoli, Turin, curated by Andrea Bellini.
