In conjunction with the exhibition "Sol LeWitt: Wall Drawing 353," Veronica Roberts — curator of modern and contemporary art at the Blanton Museum of Art at The University of Texas at Austin — will speak on Sol LeWitt, a leading figure of Minimalism and pioneer of Conceptual art. Redefining art production by exploring ideas rather than conventional aesthetics, LeWitt distilled art to its essentials. Using the cube as a “grammatical device,” LeWitt’s work is characterized by serialization, repetition, and progression, exemplified by his iconic open-grid structures. LeWitt’s wall drawings are executed directly on the wall, using predetermined line-making procedures set out by the artist. This lecture will take place in Northrup 040, the basement lecture hall of the Northrup Building on Trinity University Campus.
