Mudam Luxembourg – Musée d’Art Moderne Grand-Duc Jean announces a major monographic exhibition on the sculpture of Robert Morris (b. 1931, Kansas City, Missouri; d. 2018, Kingston, New York). Conceived in dialogue with the artist before his death in 2018, the exhibition offers a rare opportunity to view emblematic works and installations of the 1960s and ’70s borrowed from major public and private collections.

Robert Morris. The Perceiving Body focuses on the artist’s experiments with form, process and acts of beholding. The works included, dating from 1961 to 1977, are largely associated with Minimal and Postminimal Art, tendencies that Morris addressed-and helped to define-in his extensive theoretical writings of the period. Presented across spaces on two floors of the museum, large installations and discrete groups of related works form a constellation of rooms each representing a separate but related aspect of the artist’s production during this period. 

Robert Morris. The Perceiving Body is curated by Jeffrey Weiss. The presentation at Mudam is coordinated by Clément Minighetti, assisted by Sarah Beaumont. It is organised in collaboration with Musée d’art moderne et contemporain de Saint-Étienne Métropole (where it will be presented from June 6 to September 27 2020). The exhibition is made possible through support from the Terra Foundation for American Art.

Publication Robert Morris. The Perceiving Body
Edited by Jeffrey Weiss with contributions from Caroline A. Jones, Bernard Ceysson, Courtney Fiske, Simone Forti and Jeffrey Weiss. The publication includes key writings by Robert Morris— a number of which are translated into French for the first time.

The book is co-published by Mudam Luxembourg – Musée d’Art Moderne Grand-Duc Jean, Musée d’art moderne et contemporain de Saint-Étienne Métropole and Mousse Publishing. Bilingual edition English/French. Available at Mudam Store and mudamstore.com.
