Last night, Artifex Press and Paula Cooper Gallery hosted a virtual reading of texts by Sol LeWitt, in celebration of the publication of Sol LeWitt Writings and Sol LeWitt Interviews.
The event featured Laurie Anderson, Nicholas Baume, Lucinda Childs, Gary Garrels, and Zoe Leonard. (Unfortunately, Adrian Piper was not able to attend.)
The event streamed live on PCG Studio, and a video can be seen here.
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 www.artifexpress.com.
