What is Systems Art?
Systems Art describes a group of artists which used the structures of conceptualism and minimalism to create artwork responsive to their environment. They rejected traditional art themes and embraced aesthetic systems in experimentation with diverse media, connecting with late 1960s to early 1970s political movements.Artwork by Kenneth Noland
