Conversation, Sol LeWitt Wall Drawings: Maintaining a Legacy

Thursday, January 24, 2019, 5:30 pm

When Sol LeWitt created his first wall drawing in 1968, he began a process of art making that has engaged dozens of artist apprentices and draftspersons over the past 50 years. Join us for a conversation on the practices of LeWitt drafters, the relationship between the drafters and the evolution of the works, and the future of LeWitt’s wall drawings. John Hogan, the Mary Jo and Ted Shen Installation Director and Archivist for Sol LeWitt Wall Drawings, is joined by Lindsay Aveilhé, Editor, Sol LeWitt Wall Drawings Catalogue Raisonné; Sarah Heinemann, Senior Studio Drafter; Karen Tepaz, Studio Drafter; and Chris Vacchio, Director of Research, Sol LeWitt Wall Drawings Catalogue Raisonné. Presented in conjunction with the exhibition Sol LeWitt Wall Drawing: Expanding a Legacy and in celebration of the Sol LeWitt Wall Drawings Catalogue Raisonné, recently published by Artifex Press.

Generously sponsored by the Martin A. Ryerson Lectureship Fund.
