Sol LeWitt (American, 1928-2007)
Seven-Part Variations on Two Different Kinds of Cubes, 1967-69
Steel and enamel
Museum purchase, 1984.29
LeWitt is a pioneer of conceptual art, in which the idea behind an artwork is as important as the resulting art object. An example of this belief, LeWitt's concepts for sculptures take the form of written instructions for completion by fabricators. LeWitt uses mathematical rules to create a harmonic framework of regular shapes that he variously combines and repeats. The cube in particular, with its simple, perfect geometry, became LeWitt's ideal form. In this sculpture, two kinds of steel cubes - those with four sides and those with five - are stacked in pairs, each of the units a different configuration of the basic type. The work is marked both by industrial precision and the intriguing play of shadow.
Following the gallery talk guests will enjoy a undoubtedly "square" meal prepared by Hap Abraham Catering. Check back soon for menu details!
