"Afterimage: drawing through process"

  • Eva Hesse
catalogue published in association with MIT Press, $35, £24.50

Working in the late 1960s and early 1970s, a group of American artists rejected formal procedures in art. The result — process art — was possibly the most ephemeral movement in art history; which seems appropriate for art that was centred more on the act than on the final product. The untitled work above, by Eva Hesse, is featured in the exhibition “Afterimage: drawing through process” (catalogue published in association with MIT Press, $35, £24.50). The exhibition, which was organized by Cornelia Butler, has recently ended at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles. It will be at the Contemporary Arts Museum, Houston, Texas, next year.
