Sol LeWitt wall drawings shown in Germany

A major exhibition of Sol LeWitt wall drawings will be held at both of Konrad Fisher Galerie’s locations in Berlin and Dusseldorf.

The coloured version will be shown in Dusseldorf and the black and white version in Berlin.

The gallery explains: “From his own perspective, LeWitt succeeded, with his wall drawings, in solving a whole series of problems that had plagued art, especially painting, and in opening up a broad new field of activity for himself.

“He avoided the illusionism, expressiveness, and narrativity of painting. He excluded moments of perception from the work’s production, negated the importance of artistic execution, and left the work’s realization to others, without calling his own position as ‘author’ into question.”
