Room 104.05 Ree Morton. To Each Concrete Man, 1974

Room?s details

The work of Ree Morton (Ossining, New York, 1936 – Chicago, 1977) was developed in the context of 1970s American art, characterised by its shunning of Abstract Expressionism’s official supremacy. The piece To Each Concrete Man, whose title draws inspiration from the thinking of Spanish philosopher Miguel de Unamuno (1894–1936), employs everyday materials and found objects to compose an installation that calls upon the viewer to enter the work and explore the notion of space and the relationships that materialise between body and object.
