Sol LeWitt: arcs and tangents
Hear from the curator of the LeWitt Collection
Janet Passehl, curator of the LeWitt Collection, takes a behind-the-scenes look at the life and art of Sol LeWitt (America, 1928–2007), one of the most influential artists of his generation.
Passehl worked with LeWitt in Chester, Connecticut, USA, during the last 17 years of his life, and she continues to work for the LeWitt family. In this lecture, she will provide unique access into LeWitt’s studio practice and his methods for developing structures and wall drawings through working drawings, with a focus on works in the Art Gallery of NSW collection. Glimpses of his home, studio, the art collection warehouse, the diaries he carried everywhere from 1969 to 1993, and rarely seen early work will be included. Passehl will also address LeWitt’s passion for collecting and showcasing work by more than 700 artists whom he encountered in his daily life and his travels abroad.
