Celebrations of sentiment, wit and thought: an overview on the beloved and influential American postminimalist Ree Morton This volume accompanies the first major United States exhibition of artist Ree Morton (1936–77) in nearly four decades.

During a brief but incredibly prolific career, Morton produced installations, sculptures and drawings rich in emotion and philosophically complex, that celebrated tropes of love, friendship and motherhood, radically asserting sentiment as a legitimate subject of artmaking. Her inclusion of personal narrative—through literary, theoretical and autobiographical references—and use of bold color and theatrical imagery infused her objects with sly humor and decorative energy, generating a feminist legacy increasingly appreciated in retrospect.

Long celebrated by peers and younger generations, Morton’s influence on contemporary art remains considerable yet widely under-recognized.
