Abstract:

Sol LeWitt, Representation, and an Audience of One. -- Systematic networks of lines covering entire walls; geometric figures freestanding in the center of a gallery; complex instructions that require a team of artists to complete--these are often what first come to mind when considering Sol LeWitt. Yet there is also a portion of LeWitt's work aimed at an intimate audience of one--the artist's book. -- LeWitt recognized early the potential benefits in distributing artistic production through low cost publications: books offer permanence to the artistic moment that is lacking in a scheduled gallery setting; they can allow an artist deeper and more complete control of their presentation; their audience is at the same time more far reaching than an exhibition and yet very intimate to the individual viewer holding the object in his hand. As a founder in the early 1970s of Printed Matter, a bookstore devoted entirely to artists' books and their creation, he championed affordable books as an artistic vehicle, both for his peers and for himself. -- While the use of artist's books fit nicely with the qualities of his system-driven conceptual and minimal works, they also proved uniquely suited for his little known photographic work. Despite the representational element inherent in photography, LeWitt uses the nature of the book format to organize his images to reflect the seriality and systems that permeate his non-representational works. -- "The Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute is pleased to present this special installation of works from the Clark Library on the occasion of the opening of Sol LeWitt: A Wall Drawing Retrospective at Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art." -- All of the works shown are from the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute Library.

This strip of images from the earlier wall piece, Muybridge II was LeWitt's contribution to Artists & Photographs, a boxed set of multiples created by contemporary artists. Muybridge II acknowledges LeWitt's debt to the nineteenth-century photographer famous for his stop action photography. The seriality of the originals was appealing to the nascent Minimalists.
