James Meyer is associate professor of art history at Emory University. The step further seems to be Meyer's "Minimalism: Art and Polemics in the Sixties," which I 've just started and so far puts the meat on the bones built by this book. One person found this helpful.
Pär Lagerkvist's pamphlet Literary Art and Pictorial Art was one of the very few avant-garde manifestos in Nordic art and literature before 1925, and it played a considerable role in the development of modernism in Sweden. By stressing the functionalist character of cubism, in particular, Lagerkvist demonstrated that avant-garde art need not be nihilist or decadent, but, on the contrary, could. contribute to the rational planning of a future society.

Beginning with the first reviews of minimalist shows, the book tracks the development of an art that critics dubbed Cool Art, ABC Art, and Primary Structures before settling on the deprecating label "minimal art." Suggesting that such work was overly reduced in form and facture, this term implied that the new abstraction was barely legible as fine art to some viewers. Meyer describes the heated polemic that unfolded in response to these practices, the differing claims of the artists, and the sometimes intense rivalries that developed within a highly competitive, fashion-minded New York art scene. The book culminates with an analysis of minimalism's canonization in the late sixties, its reception in Europe, and its discrediting by leftist viewers who associated the new art with American capitalist-imperialism of the Vietnam War.
