Iconic American artist Sol LeWitt is credited with helping to establish both minimalism and conceptual art. After more than a decade spent working in close collaboration with the artist’s estate, Artifex Press presents Sol LeWitt Wall Drawings Catalogue Raisonné, the definitive publication of the roughly 1,350 wall drawings that LeWitt  produced. Comprising archival photographs, diagrams, installation instructions, sound recordings, and video, the collection  highlights the evolution of LeWitt’s work over the roughly 3,500 installations of his wall drawings. 


The catalog’s editorial team is joined by an artist and close friend of LeWitt, Senior Curator of Visual Arts at MASS MoCA, and the Installation Director for Sol LeWitt's wall drawings to discuss the publication and reflect on the lasting importance of the artist’s body of work.
