Contesting the progress-and-mastery saga of twentieth century modernism, Chicago-based artist Tony Tasset
spent much of the 1980s and '90s meticulously crafting insolent, critical objects, and the nine works represented in this ten-year survey (1986-96) unambiguously assert his past affinity for blunt deconstructionist strategies.
Between then and now, a healthy variety of artists have taken oedipal aim at the art of that time: Back in the '80s, for example, Tony Tasset
based upholstered-furniture-like works on Donald Judd's serial arrangements of boxes, and more recently, in a different vein, Karen Kilimnik has worked on the scatter principle, converting it from a formal and theoretical rethinking of artmaking methodology into an eccentric meditation on fashion and postadolescent yearning.
Back in the '80s, at least for a little while, Tony Tasset
was one of a number of artists playing games with the heritage of Minimalism, building cubes and boxes that made you think of Donald Judd and then upholstering them plushly in leather.

In preparation for the event, William MacMillan, the conservator at the Higgins, recently climbed a ladder to take a close look at the condition of each of the suits of armor, which consist of a breastplate, a backplate, tassets
and a helmet with a down-turned brim.
Comprising a close helmet, breastplate and tassets
(thigh protectors), backplate, gorget (collar) and shoulder plates, the suit is associated with a number of finely-etched north German armours made in the early 1560s for the dukes of Brunswick, their court and their men-at-arms.
