Sol LeWitt honoured at the Fondazione Carriero
Between the Lines, an exhibition of works by the leading figure of Minimalism and pioneer of Conceptual art Sol LeWitt is staged at Fondazione Carriero in Milan. The amazing show is on view until until 26 June 2018. It is curated by Francesco Stocchi, Rem Koolhaas and presented in collaboration with the Estate of Sol LeWitt.
The exhibition spans LeWitt’s entire career and features 7 monumental Wall Drawings and 15 sculptures highlighting the artist’s affinities with architecture, serialization and progression. Widely regarded as one of the most important and influential artists of the last half of the 20th century, LeWitt helped revolutionize the definition of art in the 1960s. Early in his career, the cube became the basic module for his artistic inquiry—“the grammatical device”—from which his work developed. Sol LeWitt used the cube to create structures in a myriad of variations, usually in series, over the course of his more than 40-year career.
LeWitt has been the subject of numerous one-artist exhibitions and his work is held in public collections worldwide. In 2008, MASS MoCA opened Sol LeWitt: A Wall Drawing Retrospective, which will remain on view through 2033.
Pace has represented The Estate of Sol LeWitt since 2007.
