Exhibition talks: Sol LeWitt
Hear from curators and experts
Sol LeWitt: Your mind is exactly at that line presents works from across the artist’s 40-year career, many of which have never been shown before in Australia.
The exhibition begins with LeWitt’s early wall drawings and structures that chart his first experimentations with the line and finishes with the very last in his series of over 1200 wall drawings. Unique to this landmark exhibition is the display and documentation of LeWitt’s personal and artistic relationships with Australia, including the display of work by Indigenous artists Emily Kam Ngwarray and Gloria Tamerre Petyarre from LeWitt’s own collection.
Join curators and experts as they explore LeWitt’s practice, ideas and processes and tell the story of the artist’s connection to Australia.
