Sol LeWitt [electronic resource]: Wall Drawings

Checkerboard (Firm)
Format
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
Summary
Considered a key pioneer of conceptual art, Sol LeWitt operated on the belief that the idea generating the artwork is more important than its execution-a notion that helped to define postmodern notions of what art is and can be. During his four-decade career, LeWitt produced more than 1,200 "wall drawings." These utilized a deliberately limited repertoire of lines and geometric shapes, but the results pushed beyond Minimalism, achieving an astonishing level of beauty and complexity. This film focuses on a retrospective of LeWitt's drawings at MASS MoCA in North Adams, Massachusetts, which opened for a planned 25-year run in 2008. The exhibition includes 105 works from 1968-2008, installed posthumously, on roughly 40,000 square feet of old mill wall surface-the most expansive view of LeWitt's oeuvre in a single space.
