This exhibition investigates some of the themes and issues that arose during a seminal period in contemporary art from the mid-1960s through the 1970s. Featuring the work of around thirty international artists the exhibition traces a particular aspect of the period, as artists built upon the structures and systems of Fluxus, Neo-Concretism, Minimalism and Conceptualism, to show us new and more fluid ways of thinking about the self, the world and the work of art. Open Systems includes work by Bas Jan Ader, Marcel Broodthaers, Valie Export, Ilya Kabakov and Robert Smithson among others.
