The analytical work of Charles Gaines has been viewed as a crucial bridge between Conceptual Art from the 1960s and the artistic practices of subsequent generations. For over forty years, Gaines has created rule-based photographs, drawings, and works on paper to reveal systems of order and meaning. After 1989, the focus of his work shifted more explicitly to issues of race, class, and power—man-made systems marked by inequalities that also affect the way we see.
