The temperature in New York had reached the low 80s when I schlepped downtown for Sam Lewitt's Less Lights Warm Words at the Swiss Institute. Entering the gallery, which is nestled between the frenzy of Canal street and SoHo, in a rush, it immediately became clear that the title of Lewitt’s intervention was a massive understatement.
