Academic Journal
The article focuses on the 1970 exhibition of artist Robert Morris at the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York City and two organizations: the Art Workers' Coalition (AWC) and the New York Art Strike Against War, Racism, and Repression (Art Strike). The AWC and the Art Strike are often referred to as vehicles for artists' to protest the Vietnam War, racism and sexism; however, the author presents the organizations as unions, since minimalist artists liken themselves to blue color workers.
