They danced on the roofs of Manhattan: in the 1960s a group of artists in New York began developing a new form of art that went beyond the object. The new, time-based practices of artists such as Robert Morris, Trisha Brown, Simone Forti, Richard Serra, Sol LeWitt, Lucinda Childs and Yvonne Rainer embraced media such as dance, music, and film. Now, they will be shown in their historical dialogue with Minimalism in an exhibition celebrating the fortieth anniversary of Paris's Centre Pompidou at the Carre d'Art in Nimes. A Different Way to Move will also include works by Carl Andre, Vito Acconci, Dan Flavin, and Bruce Nauman; the richly illustrated catalogue contains a collection of essays which open up and question the vision of Minimalism, as well as original texts by the artists about this new awakening in art fifty years ago, now published together for the first time.
