Exhibition at Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen pays tribute to Sol LeWitt

Under the title Lines and Lines. Sol LeWitt and Konrad Fischer. Traces of a Close Cooperation, the Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen pays tribute to the inventor and influential representative of American conceptual art in the Dorothee and Konrad Fischer Archive at K21 from July 27, 2021 until the end of the year. 1967: In June, the American artist Sol LeWitt (1928–2007) published the essential principles of his conceptual art for the first time in Artforum: “What the work of art looks like isn’t too important […] No matter what form it may finally have it must begin with an idea.” With such principals as well as his minimalistic works — Modular Wall Structure, 1967/2005 is on display — Sol LeWitt would change art permanently. At the end of the same year, Konrad Fischer (1939–1996) opened his first gallery space in Düsseldorf at Neubrückstrasse 12 with a floor piece by Carl Andre.
