The work of American artist Robert Morris (1931-2018) seems to find more and more relevance each year. Often associated with Minimalist productions—such as those of Carl Andre, Donald Judd, and Dan Flavin—Morris' work was in reality "multimedia" from the outset and never determined by any style or form.
