This exhibition of prints by Cyril Lixenberg reflects the qualities of the Post-minimalist movement. Many artists of this time challenged minimalist ideas through a broad range of concepts, techniques, and materials. By extracting personal, cultural and political contexts artists extended minimalist beliefs, questioned mood, and created work with organic, expressive qualities. Lixenberg decided to simultaneously produce both site- specific sculptures and silkscreens to showcase the contradictory ideas of minimalism and Post- minimalism. "Phase Array" is an example of a silkscreen from these dichotomic pieces, which comments on the concepts obtained by different movements and how these ideas manifest themselves in society.
