Robert Morris was born in Kansas City in 1931 and lives and works in Gardiner (USA). He is a minimalist artist, art critic and teacher (Hunter College, New York). His preference is for neutral shapes integrating an experience of time and space. Having left California for New York he joined the Judson Dance Theater with his wife the choreograph Simone Forti, wrote a number of plays and exhibited his minimalist sculptures at the Green Gallery. His work alternates between drawing, performance, geometric or labyrinthine modules, felt wall hangings and Land Art oeuvres –Steam and Observatory. In 1969, he participated in the cult exhibition “When Attitude Becomes Forms” in Bern. In 1980 he returned towards figurative work for a short period. He has enjoyed several retrospective exhibitions, in France at the Pompidou Centre (1995) and in New York at the Guggenheim (1994). He is present in the collections of many international museums.
