Gerard Byrne's multi-channel film installation was commissioned and co-produced by the Renaissance Society, Lismore Castle Arts, the 2010 Glasgow International Festival of Contemporary Art, and Van Abbemuseum. The title quotes Carl Andre’s famous dictum while the work considers the historical reception of Minimalism as a movement, a history that is resonant within the context of the Renaissance Society’s early engagement with that movement’s artists. Art historian Pamela M. Lee contributed an essay on this work for the 2015 publication Centennial: A History of the Renaissance Society 1915–2015.
