With paintings by Dan Christensen, Gene Davis, Richard Diebenkorn, Lorser Feitelson, Amy Feldman, Peter Halley, Willy Heeks, Carmen Herrera, Odili Donald Odita, Sean Scully, David Simpson, Cary Smith, Leon Polk Smith, and Frank Stella, nonObjectives is a vibrant chronicle of the evolution of reducing art to its essential qualities.
