“Global Conceptualism: Points of Origin, 1950s-1980s”

Queens Museum
New York City Building Flushing Meadows
April 29–August 22, 1999

Recent exhibitions of Conceptual art have focused primarily on work produced in the United States and Europe during the ’60s and early ’70s. Organized by an international team of curators, “Global Conceptualism” casts its net wide: Works by Kosuth, Broodthaers, Piper, and other avatars of American and European Conceptualism are shown alongside lesser-known projects from Africa, Australia and New Zealand, East Asia, Eastern Europe, and Latin America. Presenting over ninety artists of diverse origins, the Queens Museum of Art repackages the Conceptual model for a contemporary, globalized art world. Apr. 29–Aug. 22; travel venues to be announced.
