A couple of quotes taken from the introduction in??Hal Foster's 1996 The Return of the Real

Introduction
"For her playing of the piece conveyed not only specific concerns of minimalist work – the tensions among the spaces we feel, the images we see, and the forms we know – but also general shifts in art over the last three decades – new interventions into space, different constructions of viewing, and expanded definitions of art."

"For even as the avant-garde recedes into the past, it also returns from the future, repositioned by innovative art in the present."
