I don’t know if anyone else has seen the YouTube animation that explains the ten dimensions of the physical world, as predicted by the theoretical framework of M- or String theory. It’s quite confusing. However, one of the ideas it introduces is that at certain points the shift from one dimension to the next is achieved by folding that dimension through into the next (in similar fashion to how one would fold a piece of paper into a Mobius strip). This is the process that allows a bei... [more]

Minimal art is to art what art is to things at large. Respected, but somehow standing out as a little too elitist, an easy way in the complexity of a larger universe. After the first round of sixties minimalism has been fully incorporated by institutions all over the world, even somebody who appreciates abstraction and is privy to art history might be caught frowning upon an industrially-manufactured monochromatic cube. Tackling minimal aesthetics today requires a little more sophistication than the faux n... [more]

The collection of the Daimler Corporation focuses on “abstract and geometrical pictorial concepts, from which it derives its distinctive character,” which is an excellent starting point for conceptual approaches to art marking. It seems like Sol LeWitt is becoming lionized as the unchallenged father of the conceptual art, his practice bridges the pictorial and the sculptural and provides a through-road from Minimalism to hardcore “conceptual art” as it were. And while luminaries of the traditio... [more]

Thumbing through my dog-eared dictionary (site of too many tongue-tied beginnings), abstraction is firstly a “duality of dealing with ideas rather than events” and secondly, probably in some ways more accurately for our purposes, “freedom from representational qualities in art.” Just like “modern” gets handily replaced by “contemporary” even if they sort of mean the same thing, “abstraction” gets knocked out by “conceptualism,” even if, through at least one definition, they also mean sort of the s...

I often find myself referring to Sol Lewitt's "Sentences..." as well as his "Paragraphs on Conceptual Art." I'm not sure if this is because of the simple grace of his prose, or because the contents seem to so cleanly spell out so many of the rhythms and ideas (it is "conceptual" after all) of not only his generation of artists, but as conceptual art for better or for worse seems the dominant mode for a few generations. If one followed his notes in your own irrational way, not even all but just one... [more]

Case Studies from the Bureau of Contemporary Art will present a number of thematic points of entry into the New Mexico Museum of Art’s contemporary collection. A selections show that includes ceramics, paintings, drawings, photography, sculpture and video, Case Studies considers the disparate hubs of war, figuration, seriality, materiality, and the containment of nature, among other themes, as part of the constellation of work that constitutes the contemporary collection under the fictitious guis...

Sol LeWitt at Rhona Hoffman Gallery April 9th, 2010 - May 15th, 2010
Posted 4/26/10

          This exhibition is classic LeWitt. Consisting of massive wall pieces, a sculpture and two gouaches, the show functions as a concise look at LeWitt’s output. Entering the gallery from the street, the first piece encountered is Wall Drawing #469, 1986, a grid of four rectangles filled with arcs of primary colors. Beyond it, the main gallery is filled with eight more wall drawings, all variations on a “tilted form” and stretching from floor to ceiling. In a small nook is an iceberg-like... [more]

  Zane Bennett Contemporary Art is proud to present an upcoming show celebrating the 20th century’s greatest contemporary master artists. Helen Frankenthaler, Robert Motherwell, Sol LeWitt, and Ellsworth Kelly were some of the creators, developers, and leaders of major contemporary art movements starting in the 1950s. Abstract Expressionism, Color Field Painting, Minimalism, and Conceptualism have all become familiar phrases in the scope of the contemporary art field because of these artists and... [more]
