Sol LeWitt Wall Drawings: Expanding a Legacy

  • March 2, 2018–January 27, 2019
Sol LeWitt Wall Drawings: Expanding a Legacy features seven drawings newly donated to the Gallery from the artist’s estate, making the Gallery’s collection of LeWitt’s work in this signature medium the largest of any museum worldwide. The drawings on view represent a range of the artist’s techniques, including bold geometric patterns executed in colorful ink wash and works composed entirely of fine graphite lines. The exhibition also celebrates the newly inaugurated Sol LeWitt Wall Drawing Study Center at Yale West Campus, which will house the archive of this groundbreaking artist and be an international nexus for research on his work.
Exhibition organized by Jock Reynolds, the Henry J. Heinz II Director; Pamela Franks, Senior Deputy Director and the Seymour H. Knox, Jr., Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art; and John Hogan, the Mary Jo and Ted Shen Installation Director and Archivist for Sol LeWitt Wall Drawings. Made possible by the Joann and Gifford Phillips, Class of 1942, Fund.
