Film Event at the National Gallery of Art, West Building: Sol LeWitt
Friday, August 15th
1:00pm - 2:30pm

"Dutch filmmaker Chris Teerinks portrait of Sol LeWitt is the first ever documentary on the American conceptual artist who famously refused awards, interviews, and media coverage. A leader of the minimalist movement, LeWitt (1928-2007) was renowned for his immense wall drawings executed by teams of workers using just a basic set of written instructions. "When I learned about the reinstallment of wall drawing #801 in Maastricht, I saw an opportunity to create a film on someone who influenced me deeply." (Chris Teerink, 2013, 80 minutes)."
