Topic: more notes on Tony Smith

"Whereas most sculpture in recent years has attempted to transcend objectness by emphasizing the symbolic content of the work, Smith's pieces transcend objectness by emphasizing the symbolic content of the experience of the work. You cannot talk about the meaning of a Tony Smith sculpture without talking about your feelings about it."


Eugen C. Goossen, Nine Sculptures by Tony Smith, catalog, 1970.
