Sol LeWitt (American, b.1928 - d.2007)

A founding member of both Minimalism and Conceptual Art, renowned artist Sol LeWitt pushed the boundaries of our definition of art. After serving in the military, LeWitt moved to New York in the early 1950s and worked as graphic designer. In the 1960s, he began creating two-and-three dimensional works based on the cube, varying its basic modular form through mathematics and language. LeWitt began exhibiting with a seminal group of Minimalists which included these cube structures, as well as large-scale wall drawings. He also created many artists’ books and co-founded Printed Matter, which publishes and circulates artists’ book to the public. LeWitt’s work has been the subject of numerous solo exhibitions including at the Museum of Modern Art and the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and London’s Tate Gallery. Currently his work is the subject of a retrospective at MASS MoCA that continues to 2033. He also exhibited his work at several documenta exhibitions and Venice Biennale shows.
