Beschrijving Sol LeWitt

Tent. Massachusetts, Williams College Museum of Art, 15-09-2012, 09-12-2012. - Monografie onderzoekt de betekenis van het grid in het werk van de Amerikaanse kunstenaar Sol LeWitt. - The Well-Tempered Grid is the first exhibition to focus on the centrality of the grid in LeWitt's art. The exhibition focuses on LeWitt's use of the grid as a generative matrix for his artistic production over the span of nearly five decades, from 1960 until his death in 2007. Inspired by his first encounter with the work of photographer Eadweard Muybridge in the late 1950s, LeWitt began experimenting with a loosely structured grid in several large oil paintings of 1960, based on the Muybridge motif of a running man. By 1962 he had simplified his use of this format to exclude figurative elements, and by 1964 he was making his first wall-mounted grid structures. When LeWitt made his first wall drawings in 1968 he used the grid as the underlying structural principle. Thereafter, grids became a pervasive matrix in all of the media in which LeWitt worked--three-dimensional structures, drawings and gouaches on paper, photographic cycles, artist's books, furniture and wall drawings
