July 8, 2020

6:00 pm EST

Artifex Press and Paula Cooper Gallery invite you to a virtual reading of texts by Sol LeWitt, in celebration of the publication of Sol LeWitt Writings and Sol LeWitt Interviews.


Laurie Anderson / Nicholas Baume / Lucinda Childs

Gary Garrels / Zoe Leonard / Adrian Piper

The event will stream live on July 8, 2020, at 6pm EST on PCG Studio, Paula Cooper Gallery’s online platform for screenings, performances, conversations, and editorial features. No login or RSVP is necessary, and a recording of the event will be posted on the site shortly after its completion.


The event features six readers, most of whom had a close personal bond with LeWitt, including two whose interviews with LeWitt are included in the new publications. Laurie Anderson, Lucinda Childs, Zoe Leonard, and Gary Garrels will be reading interviews live, while Adrian Piper and Nicholas Baume have contributed recorded readings of several LeWitt’s writings.

Sol LeWitt Writings and Sol LeWitt Interviews collectively chart how LeWitt's artistic practice evolved over time, but also underscore the consistency of his thinking about his art and his conception of authorship. The texts cover a range of topics, from his teaching and relationship to the art world, to his theories of artmaking and of specific groups of work, most notably his wall drawings. The volumes were edited by Lindsay Aveilhé and Chris Vacchio and have been incorporated into the Sol LeWitt Wall Drawings Catalogue Raisonné (Artifex Press, 2018).

Sol LeWitt Wall Drawings, which includes the new volumes, is available free for registered users through the end of July 2020, as part of Artifex Press’s effort to provide access to its catalogues during the COVID-19 pandemic. To register, visit

The event will stream live on July 8, 2020, at 6pm EST on PCG Studio.
