Seven Wall Drawings
This is the most extensive exhibition of Sol LeWitt’s wall drawings in Scandinavia to date. The American artist was born in 1928 and passed away in 2007. A number of retrospective exhibitions focusing on his wall drawings have taken place in the USA since 2000, most notably at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (2000), Dia Beacon, New York (ongoing) and the ambitious large-scale presentation at Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art, North Adams (2008-2033). In Europe the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam presented a retrospective with LeWitt’s wall drawings in 1984, which was followed by an exhibition at Kunsthalle Bern in 1989. In Sweden individual wall drawings have been shown at Galleri Aronowitsch, Stockholm (1982), Moderna Museet, Stockholm (1984), Galleriet, Lund (in 1983 and 1987) and at the Nordic Watercolour Museum, Tjörn, Gothenburg (2002) amongst others.
