The Clark – From the Tower to the Void, Mary Miss’s Perimeters

Sarah Hamill (Sarah Lawrence College), Michael Ann Holly Fellow in the Clark's Research and Academic Program , considers the curiously underexamined work of the 1970s: artist Mary Miss’s Perimeters/Pavilions/Decoys (1978), which is situated on the grounds of the Nassau County Museum of Art. Rosalind Krauss opened her landmark 1979 essay “Sculpture in the Expanded Field” with the work, but it has received scant attention since.
