    VIDEO: "Sol LeWitt" by Chris Teerink

    “When an artist uses a conceptual form of art, it means that all the planning and decisions are made beforehand and the execution is a perfunctory affair. The idea becomes the machine that makes the art.” – Sol LeWitt

     

    Sol LeWitt, a documentary film directed by Chris Teerink, explores the intellectual processes underlying LeWitt’s work. The documentary takes us to Massachusetts where more than 100 of LeWitt’s wall drawings have been installed in a show that will last 25 years, and to New York and Italy where LeWitt lived. The documentary premiered in New York on May 7.
