Rice Gallery presents Sol LeWitt: "Glossy and Flat Black Squares" opening reception
In spring 2017, Rice Gallery will come full circle by reinstalling one of its earliest installations, Sol LeWitt's "Glossy and Flat Black Squares" (Wall Drawing #813), 1997 as its closing exhibition. LeWitt (1928-2007), a leading figure in Minimalism and pioneer of Conceptual art, created the majestic work in response to Rice Gallery's architectural space. Like a musical score that exists on paper until it is played, LeWitt's Wall Drawing exists as a set of written instructions and can be re-created.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through May 14.
