"Beginning in the late sixties, artists such as Robert Morris, Carl Andre, Richard Serra, Mel Bochner, Eva Hesse, and Smithson began to formulate, in their respective ways, a theory and practice of art that concentrated less on the making of an art object that was formally proper and finished than on an art that revealed the processes of its making, or "unmaking"."--Object to Be Destroyed (2001) by Pamela Lee

"The first artists to explore the possibilities of architecture plus not-architecture were Robert Irwin, Sol LeWitt, Bruce Nauman, Richard Serra and Christo."--"Sculpture in the Expanded Field" (1979) by Rosalind Krauss
