Converging Lines: Eva Hesse and Sol LeWitt Exhibition
The Blanton Museum of Art, University of Texas at Austin
The Blanton Museum of Art at the University of Texas at Austin received support for its exhibition and publication of Converging Lines: Eva Hesse and Sol LeWitt, on view from February 23 to May 18, 2014. The exhibition and catalogue celebrate the close friendship of Eva Hesse and Sol LeWitt and will feature 35-45 works of art, including sculptures, paintings, drawings, prints and wall drawings. The exhibition will highlight the artists’ decade-long friendship and the influence each artist had on the other, culminating with Wall Drawing #46, the “not straight lines” wall drawing LeWitt created in response to Hesse’s untimely death in 1970. The accompanying catalogue will feature approximately 50 full-plate color images and include a personal recollection by art critic, writer and activist Lucy Lippard, a friend of both artists.
