An investigation of how two geographically and chronologically different groups of artists resolved problems of form, reduction, and how they perceived absence and/or presence. Includes works by: llya Chashnik, Ellsworth Kelly, Kasimir Malevich, Ad Reinhardt, David Smith, Tony Smith  Drawing on the parallels between the works of the modern American artists and the Russian avant-garde,  John Bowlt notes that, "all these artists reduced artistic form to its purest condition and tested the very limits of pure painting and construction."
