DESCRIPTION

Organized in response to Sol LeWitt’s 1971 Wall Drawing #118, which was conceived and installed at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston that year, “Something Along Those Lines,” is on view September 13–November 3, 2012 in SMFA’s Barbara and Steven Grossman Gallery.

LeWitt’s work serves as the catalyst for this dynamic group exhibition featuring nine modern and contemporary artists who blend conceptual, sculptural and performative engagements with the formal elements of drawing: Adel Abdessemed, Ann Carlson + Mary Ellen Strom, Carlos Cruz-Diez, Gego, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Sol LeWitt, Bruce Nauman, Fred Sandback and Lawrence Weiner.
