Kazimir MalevichBlack Square, oil on canvas, Judd's sculpture was showcased in at Green Gallery in Manhattan, as were Flavin's first fluorescent light works, while other leading Manhattan galleries like Leo Castelli Gallery and Pace Gallery also began to showcase artists focused on geometric abstraction.
In addition there were two seminal and influential museum exhibitions: Guggenheim Museum curated by Lawrence Alloway also in that showcased Geometric abstraction in the American art world via Shaped canvasColor Fieldand Hard-edge painting. Klein had painted monochromes as early asand held the first private exhibition of this work in —but his first public showing was the publication of the Artist's book Yves: Peintures in November Minimalism was also a reaction against the painterly subjectivity of Abstract Expressionism that had been dominant in the New York School during the s and s.
Painting, minimalism did not reject Clement Greenberg 's claims about modernist painting's  reduction to surface and materials so much as take his claims literally. According to Lawson, minimalism was the result, even though the term "minimalism" was not generally embraced by the artists associated with it, and many practitioners of art designated minimalist by critics did not identify it as a movement as such.
Also taking exception to this claim was Clement Greenberg himself; in his postscript to his essay Modernist Painting he disavowed this interpretation of what he said, writing: There have been some further constructions of what I wrote that go over into preposterousness: That I regard flatness and the inclosing of flatness not just as the limiting conditions of pictorial art, but as criteria of aesthetic quality in pictorial art; that the further a work advances the self-definition of an art, the better that work is bound to be.
The philosopher or art historian who can envision me—or anyone at all—arriving at aesthetic judgments in this way reads shockingly more into himself or herself than into my article. They very explicitly stated that their art was not about self-expression, and unlike the previous decade's more subjective philosophy about art making theirs was 'objective'.

These essays paid great attention to the idea of the gestalt — "parts Beyond Objects", originally published in Artforum,continuing on to say that "indeterminacy of arrangement of parts is a literal aspect of the physical existence of the thing. One of the first artists specifically associated with minimalism was the painter Frank Stellafour of whose early "black paintings" were included in the show, 16 Americansorganized by Dorothy Miller at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
The width of the stripes in Frank Stellas's black paintings were often determined by the dimensions of the lumber he used for stretchers to support the canvas, visible against the canvas as the depth of the painting when viewed from the side.
Stella's decisions about structures on the front surface of the canvas were therefore not entirely subjective, but pre-conditioned by a "given" feature of the physical construction of the support.
In the show catalog, Carl Andre noted, "Art excludes the unnecessary. Frank Stella has found it necessary to paint stripes. There is nothing else in his painting. Stella received immediate attention from the MoMA show, but other artists—including Kenneth NolandGene DavisRobert Motherwelland Robert Ryman —had also begun to explore stripes, monochromatic and Hard-edge formats from the late 50s through the s.
