LeWitt x 2
February - May 27, 2007
This two-part exhibition features both the work of Sol LeWitt and an insider's look at the contemporary art collection that he and his wife Carol created. It offers a unique and intimate view of the aesthetic of one of America's most distinguished artists.
Sol LeWitt: Structure and Line includes 45 drawings, gouaches and structures by the artist dating from the 1960s to the present.
Selections from the LeWitt Collection, the second exhibition component, features approximately 100 works that the LeWitts have collected from friends and fellow artists since the 1960s.
Together, the two presentations offer a unique, intimate look at the aesthetic of one of America’s most distinguished artists.
MAM has commissioned one of LeWitt's celebrated wall drawings to accompany the exhibition.
