Sol LeWitt is seen as a founder of both conceptual art and minimal art. He believed that art did not necessarily have to be executed by the artist himself, or at all, the idea was art in itself.

LeWitt made more than 1200 wall drawings. He wrote precise instructions with which others can carry them out. The wall drawings for this exhibition are executed by students from the Utrecht University of the Arts. The wall drawings only exist temporarily; they will be painted over after the exhibition. He chose cube as the basic shape for his spatial work. He called his sculptures structures. They consist of white cubes in different compositions.

About Sol LeWitt (1928-2007)

Sol LeWitt was the son of Jewish immigrants from Russia. He led a secular life but identified with his Jewish heritage. His wife Carol describes LeWitt as “a very professing non-believer.” In the 1980s he became a member of a Jewish community, for which he eventually designed and built a synagogue. His Jewish identity is also expressed in a number of relatively unknown projects, which are highlighted in the exhibition.

The Netherlands

Dutch museums, galleries, collectors and artists played an important role in Sol LeWitt’s career from the start. His first retrospective exhibition in Europe was organized by the Haags Gemeente Museum in 1970. During that period he worked with the famous Amsterdam gallery Art & Project. Many of LeWitt’s friends are well-known names from the Dutch art scene in the 1970s, such as conceptual artist Jan Dibbets, curator Enno Develing and art collectors Mia and Martin Visser.
