(movement, 1965-1975)

Postminimalism, in the narrow sense, means the art by the generation next to minimalist artists, such as Eva Hesse and Richard Serra, who were representative artists at that time, and in the broad sense, it means "a series of art movements in the decade from 1965 to 1975," which indicates the coinstantaneous developments of the time, including process art, earthworks, conceptual art, performance, and installations. Postminimalism, as well as minimalism, seems to correspond to the turning point from modemism to postmodernism, and therefore, seems to be one of the important clues, when we consider the argument about art and sites, such as current installations and public art. Postminimalism refers specifically to artists whom utilise Minimalism either as an aesthetic or conceptual reference point from which to develop. The term does not refer to a particular movement but rather an artistic tendency. Post-minimalist artwork is often associated or confused with conceptual art; frequently a work or artist can be described as both, as it is this conceptual element which regularly distinguishes it from Minimalism
