Sol LeWitt called downtown New York home from the 1950s, when he was a burgeoning artist who moonlighted as a night receptionist at MoMA, until the early ‘80s, when he took off for Italy. In 1979, the conceptual artist snapped several photographs of the Lower East Side, then a gritty neighborhood of immigrants. 120 of those photographs will now be permanently on view at the Mondrian SoHo, thanks to a collaboration with independent curator Adam Shopkorn, the LeWitt Foundation, and Paula Cooper Gal
Sol LeWitt’s sculptures have sprouted in City Hall Park like spectacular hybrids of architecture and vegetation, blooming between bench and fountain, flowering among the bins, and winding lazily among bustling crowds. These huge creations gossip lightly with the trees and delve into more serious tête-à-têtes with the neighbourhood’s skyscrapers. “Sol LeWitt: Structures, 1965-2007” is the first outdoor survey of his most monumental works, with 27 pieces from every stage of his career sprinkled lik
SFMOMA has acquired an unusual piece of postwar minimalist art by Sol LeWitt, the museum announced today. The work is called Wall Grid (3 x 3); it was produced in 1966. It's one of LeWitt's "structures," three-dimensional works in steel or wood that characterized his output from 1964 to 1968. Museum curator Gary Garrels says Wall Grid (3 x 3) is a rare type of work, explaining that minimalist artists created pieces with this kind of ultra-simplicity only from 1964 to 1966 or 1967. Minimalist ar
An ambitious installation of the largest commissioned scribble drawing by American artist Sol LeWitt, a pioneer in the development of Minimalism and Conceptual art in the 1960s and 1970s, has been completed at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery. The stairwell that connects the Gallery’s 1962 Knox Building and 1905 Albright Building, has been dramatically transformed by the work. The drawing, named Wall Drawing #1268: Scribbles: Staircase (AKAG), conceived2006, executed 2010, will remain on view indefi
As the saying goes, the fox knows many little things, but the hedgehog knows one big thing. As designers go, L.A.-based Kimberly Ovitz is very much a hedgehog. Over the course of only a few seasons, Ovitz has distilled the look of her line to a few key elements: a palette of neutrals, silhouettes clean and geometric, equestrian-inspired details, and an emphasis on draped jerseys and knits that gives her collections a quality of surprising coziness. That's not a bad formula for a designer, especia
Standing, sitting and kneeling on three levels of scaffolding, more than a dozen artists drew scribble marks Monday on the walls surrounding the stairwell at Albright-Knox Art Gallery. When the 2,200-square-foot graphite wall installation designed by Sol LeWitt is completed in October, it will contain millions of random, yet deliberate, mechanical pencil strokes. The layered marks, in vertical or horizontal directions, will create tubular shapes made from six gradations of light and darkness.
