Sol LeWitt: Wall Drawings focusses is a retrospective of the artist’s wall drawings in North Adams, Massachusetts. Born in 1928, LeWitt is considered one of the key pioneers of conceptual art for his belief that concept is more important than execution. During his career, LeWitt produced more than 1,200 wall drawings using a deliberately limited repertoire of lines and geometric shapes. The exhibit highlighted in this film began a 25-year run in 2008 and includes numerous posthumously installed works on roughly 40,000 square feet of wall surface—the most expansive view of LeWitt’s oeuvre in a single space.
