This is the much favoured of the three exhibition posters, however, its importance as an image that defined the nature of art in the US in the 1960’s is often overlooked, ignored or missed altogether. With the rise of consumer culture in world’s richest country, came the urge to escape the monolith that grew out of victory. Minimalism was born to redress the chaos created with economic prosperity and the nature of a throwaway society. This ephemeral attitude is eliminated with the starkness of Kelly’s artistic representation.
