This thesis provides a revisionist history of Dutch artist Jan Dibbets's early practice. Jan Dibbets has not yet, been credited in art historical scholarship for his contributions in foregrounding visual experience within Conceptual practice. This thesis offers an additional narrative by suggesting a comparison between his early practice and the work being produced by European artists working in a tradition of visual perception. By studying the contemporary reception of Dibbets's work and Perceptual Abstraction, I argue how traditional art historical boundaries have obstructed a possible reading of this artist's practice.
