Sol LeWitt : Structures 1965 - 2006

description

Exhibition catalogue published in conjunction with outdoor installation held at City Hall Park, New York City, May 24, 2011 - December 2, 2011. Edited by Nicholas Baume. Essays by Nicholas Baume, Rachel Haidu, Anna Lovatt, Joe Madura, and Kirsten Swenson. "Sol LeWitt (1928–2007), renowned for his role in establishing Conceptualism and Minimalism as dominant art movements in the postwar era, is perhaps best known for his masterful and brilliantly colored wall drawings. Throughout his career, however, LeWitt also created many remarkable three-dimensional works suitable for display in outdoor settings. In this handsome publication, which accompanies the first major career survey of LeWitt's "structures," the artist's modular works are traced from their simplest manifestation in a single large-scale cube through multiple variations, with examples from the 1960s through the 1990s. Works from the 1980s onward explore the three-dimensional possibilities of diverse geometric forms, such as stars, and the introduction of new materials, including concrete block and fiberglass, stimulating experimentation with non-geometric, irregular forms on an increasing scale." -- publisher's statement.
