David Zwirner Gallery presents works by four pioneering artists connected with the minimalist art movement of the post World War II period in the United States. Dan Flavin, Donald Judd, John McCracken and Fred Sandback explored the importance of space, each by wildly different means. Their works will be presented separately, in different rooms so as to highlight their alternating approach to art.
