poster for Sol LeWitt Exhibition

This event has ended.

Paula Cooper Gallery presents a sweeping celebration of Sol LeWitt’s prolific career in all public locations of the gallery. Opening on September 8th, the presentation will illuminate the pioneering scope of his oeuvre across a diverse range of mediums. The exhibitions will include monumental wall drawings in India ink and Styrofoam; enumerative, encyclopedic studies in photography; tectonic open structures and oblique complex forms; as well as prints and works on paper.

At 529 West 21st Street, the gallery will exhibit a Sol LeWitt structure from 1990, entitled 12 x 12 x 1 TO 2 x 2 x 6. In the early 1960s, LeWitt created his first open structures. Composed of open modular cubes that apportioned the form’s internal space and emphasized their linear and skeletal structure, they mitigated any elements of expressiveness. In the 1980s and 90s his open-cube structures took on intensified densely layered optical play that grew into elaborate architectural constructions.
