Sol LeWitt: Four Basic Kinds of Lines & Color
Originally published in 1977, Four Basic Kinds of Lines & Colour is a classic artist’s book by preeminent conceptual artist Sol LeWitt (1928–2007). Featuring 34 pages of drawings, the work is an early example of LeWitt’s rigorous, algorithmic process in which a set of rules, applied to generate an image, are subsequently run through all of their permutations.
Sol LeWitt: A Wall Drawing Retrospective occupies nearly an acre of specially built interior walls that are installed — per LeWitt’s own specifications — over three stories of a historic mill building situated at the heart of MASS MoCA’s 19th-century, former factory campus. A landmark collaboration between MASS MoCA, Yale University Art Gallery, the Williams College Museum of Art, and the Sol Lewitt estate.
