"In 1969, Jan Dibbets created a series of works that are a touchstone of conceptual art, titled Perspective Correction. The series consisted of photographs of walls, floors and lawns on which squares have been drawn in pencil, tape, or dug into the ground. In actuality, the "squares" were trapezoids, but in the photographs the oblique perspective of the points of view made the figures appear to be squares. The work addressed a host of issues, including the role of three-dimensional illusion in painting and photography, the veracity of photography, the nature of the art object, and the role of photography in documenting ephemeral actions.

Nearly 40 years later, in 2004, Dibbets-who has never stopped exploring perceptual phenomena and applying them to architecture and landscape-created a new series based on his 1969 Perspective Correction. He selected works from his private collection by fellow artists Carl Andre, Donald Judd, Sol LeWitt, Robert Mangold, and Robert Ryman and photographed them in his studio with trapezoid/squares inscribed upon them with string. Ironically titled Perpsective Collection, the series of ten large-scale photographs constitute an homage to this era of minimal and conceptual art in the US and in Europe, of which Dibbets is among the most eminent representatives.
