    In the late ’60s, New Jersey–born Peter Downsbrough dispensed with the production of traditional art objects in favor of a phenomenological exploration of space, through photography, site-specific interventions, and artist’s books as well as audio works and CD-roms. Downsbrough has received numerous solo exhibitions, and now he gets his full due with a two-hundred-odd-work retrospective in his adopted hometown, curated by Marie-Thérèse Champesme. If you can’t get to Brussels, a major monograph (with essays by Champesme, UCLA Hammer chief curator Russell Ferguson, and art historians Christian Besson and Marjorie Welish) is in the works.
