Minimal art went nowhere.
In my case, I used the elements of these simple forms - square, cube, line and color - to produce logical systems. Most of these systems were finite; that is, they were complete using all possible variations. This kept them simple.
Artists teach critics what to think. Critics repeat what the artists teach them.
Minimalism wasn't a real idea - it ended before it started.
You shouldn't be a prisoner of your own ideas.
Buying books was a way anyone could acquire a work of art for very little.

All of the significant art of today stems from Conceptual art. This includes the art of installation, political, feminist and socially directed art.
Also, since art is a vehicle for the transmission of ideas through form, the reproduction of the form only reinforces the concept. It is the idea that is being reproduced. Anyone who understands the work of art owns it. We all own the Mona Lisa.

The narrative of serial art works more like music than like literature.
