Converging lines : Eva Hesse and Sol LeWitt by Lucy R Lippard( Book )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and Italian and held by 323 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Eva Hesse and Sol LeWitt formed a close friendship between the late 1950s and Hesse's death in 1970. Converging Lines celebrates this friendship and offers an illuminating look at their close-knit New York circle. Whereas previous scholarship has examined LeWitt's impact on Hesse, this is the first publication to demonstrate that the artists influenced each other's art and lives in reciprocal and profound ways. Richly documented, this book includes a personal recollection by Lucy R. Lippard, a distinguished American art writer and critic who was a close friend of both artists. Also included are reproductions of 39 postcards LeWitt wrote to Hesse during his international travels, along with a poignant five-page letter that he sent Hesse, attesting to his belief in her talent; a previously unpublished interview from 2001 with LeWitt about his relationship with Hesse; and an illustrated chronology drawing upon interviews, photographs, and primary documents from the time. Shedding new light on the careers and personal lives of Hesse and LeWitt, this publication explores the deep connections between two of the 20th century's most important artists.'--Publisher's website

Incomplete open cubes by Sol LeWitt( Book )

10 editions published in 1974 in English and Undetermined and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tiré du site Artgallery : "The "Incomplete open cubes" are a sequence of open-sided cube structures, each missing between one and nine of their sides. At once repetitive and varied, this series lays out 122 possible variations on the concept. The 'Incomplete open cubes' exemplify LeWitt's conceptual practice and have been widely interpreted as embodying systematic rationality; they are based on an arithmetic concept which they then take to its logical extreme. While they are internally consistent, they also manifest an irrational, obsessive quality reflected in LeWitt's own comment that "irrational thoughts should be followed absolutely and logically". Here he presents a binary between the rational and the irrational."

Ficciones by Jorge Luis Borges( Book )

1 edition published in 1984 in English and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The seventeen pieces in Ficciones demonstrate the gargantuan powers of imagination, intelligence, and style of one of the greatest writers of this or any other century. Borges sends us on a journey into a compelling, bizarre, and profoundly resonant realm; we enter the fearful sphere of Pascal's abyss, the surreal and literal labyrinth of books, and the iconography of eternal return. More playful and approachable than the fictions themselves are Borges's Prologues, brief elucidations that offer the uninitiated a passageway into the whirlwind of Borges's genius and mirror the precision and potency of his intellect and inventiveness, his piercing irony, his skepticism, and his obsession with fantasy. To enter the worlds in Ficciones is to enter the mind of Jorge Luis Borges, wherein lies Heaven, Hell, and everything in between

Carl Andre, Robert Barry, Douglas Huebler, Joseph Kosuth, Sol Lewitt, Robert Morris, Lawrence Weiner by Seth Siegelaub( Book )

4 editions published in 1968 in English and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book exhibition--also known as The Xerox Book--was organized and published by Seth Siegelaub in 1968. Both presenting a range of artists associated with Siegelaub's curatorial practice and utilizing unconventional modes of exhibition, this book marks [the] ongoing attempt by Siegelaub to show work outside of the gallery setting, and his first time showing an exhibition in book form. Furthermore, Siegelaub asked each artist in the exhibition to create 25 pages of work that responded to the photocopy format. Though the Xerox process proved financially unfeasible--the works ultimately being reproduced through the more conventional printing press--the book continued to be referred to as "The Xerox Book," preserving its association with the then-new photocopy technology" website, viewed June 14, 2016

Sol Lewitt : structures, 1965-2006 by Sol LeWitt( Book )

9 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

El artista, más conocido por su aportación al conceptualismo y el minimalismo como movimientos dominantes en la posguerra, creó a lo largo de su carrera también obras tridimensionales para la exposición en exteriores. En esta publicación, contemplando el contexto histórico en el que se desarrollaron, se analizan sus "estructuras", obras modulares en su manifestación más simple en un solo cubo a gran escala, y sus múltiples variaciones, de las que se ocupó entre 1960 y 1990. A partir de la década de 1980 el artista explora las posibilidades tridimensionales de diversas formas geométricas, como las estrellas, y trabaja con nuevos materiales, como bloques de hormigón y fibra de vidrio, y experimenta con formas no geométricas, formas irregulares, en una escala cada vez mayor

15 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book, the first retrospective of LeWitt's work in more than twenty years, fosters a deeper understanding of the artist's career and its significance to American art and thought." "Including essays by a number of curators and art historians, this volume charts the evolution of LeWitt's art from his work in Conceptualism during the early 1960s through his turn toward a more lyrical and sensual form of abstraction round 1980. With over 450 images, the book provides a visual survey of LeWitt's oeuvre from 1960 to the present, including wall drawings, three-dimensional structures, works on paper and photographs."--Jacket
