Abstract:
Forty years after the writing of "Art and Objecthood," this thesis presents an alternative idea of objecthood that moves from Michael Fried's original association of the concept with the objects of literalist (minimalist) art to an idea of objecthood as a field (of both vision and action). The potential for objecthood to be separated from Fried's attendant term "theatricality" inspires an intensive re-reading of Fried's short passage concerning Tony Smith's night time drive along the New Jersey Turnpike.
