How, in his 1960 essay “Modernist Painting,” does Clement Greenberg define modernism? Why, for Greenberg, does modernist painting become increasingly medium specific? How, according to Sol LeWitt, does Conceptual art challenge Greenberg’s paradigm? Why does LeWitt assert that Conceptual art is “free from the dependence on the skill of the artist as a craftsman”? How is the experience that Conceptual art provides for its audience thus opposed to the experience offered by modernist painting? How does Adrian Piper conceive Conceptual art? In what ways is her account of Conceptualism similar to LeWitt’s? In what ways do their viewpoints diverge?
