WHO: Sol LeWitt
WHAT: Sol LeWitt: 2D+3D
WHEN: November 18, 2010 - April 24, 2011WHERE: Walker Art Center 1750 Hennepin Avenue, Minneapolis, MN 55403, USA WHY:
As a major figure in both movements, Sol LeWitt (1928-2007) was one of the first artists whose work graced the Barnes building. LeWitt and the Walker enjoyed a relationship that spanned more than 35 years. It began with the museum's purchase of sculptures (LeWitt called them "structures") in the mid-1960s and includes approximately 200 pieces donated by the artist during his lifetime. His work is featured prominently in the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden, and his enduring wall drawings have graced the Walker's public spaces since the early 1980s.
The exhibition Sol LeWitt: 2D+3D presents for the first time the full range of the Walker's LeWitt holdings, highlighting the artist's three-dimensional structures, wall drawings, models, unique works on paper, prints, and artist's books.
