The works selected considered the claim made by the art historian and chief curator of the Dia Art Foundation in New York, James Meyer, a scholar of Minimalism. Meyer described the 1960s movement surrounding minimalism as one mainly characterized by a pared down, unexpressive, distilled sensibility that is also a complex artistic movement with contrasting practices, non-iconic, non-hierarchical strategies, and one with a bridging relation to postmodernity. Thus, while Meyer championed American artists like Carl Andre, Dan Flavin, Donald Judd, Sol LeWitt, Robert Morris, and Anne Truitt of the Post War second generation New York art scene, Vali and Dutta look toward an alternative parallel by contemporary artists from South Asia, North Africa, and the Middle East.
