About

Private View - Tuesday 9 October, 6.00 - 8.00pm, Adam Gallery LONDON Adam Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of works by acclaimed American artist, Sol LeWitt (1928-2007). Heralded as the pioneer of conceptual and minimal art, Sol LeWitt became known for transforming primary colours and geometric shapes into formal compositions that developed a complexity through spatial organisation. This collection presented by Adam Gallery contains a selection of paintings, prints and sculptures, conveying Lewitt's vivid colours and dynamic geometric studies. LeWitt came to fame in the late 1960s with his wall drawings and "structures" (a term he preferred instead of "sculptures"). He has been the subject of hundreds of solo exhibitions in museums and galleries around the world since 1965. His works are found in the most important museum collections including: Tate Modern, London, Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris and the Gueggenheim and Museum of Modern Art in New York. Sol LeWitt's most recent retrospective was organised by the San Francisco Museum of Art in 2000. The exhibition traveled to the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, and Whitney Museum of American Art, New York.
