Biography and art, auction, artworks, interview, statement, website:
From 1965 to 1970 William Anastasi made his mark with great artistic weight through fourepoch-making exhibitions at the Dwan Gallery in New York – but to little acclaim outside a narrow circle. It was during this period that the fundamental experiences of conceptual art were made; but William Anastasis effort, predating conceptual works by many other artists such as Andy Warhol, Robert Rauschenberg and Richard Serra, has been virtually invisible to the art historical treatment of conceptual art. The most recent years, however, have witnessed a markedly increasing interest, in the US as well as in Europe, in rediscovering the radical, yet surprisingly simple and beautiful works of this relatively overlooked artist.
