Partita for 8 voices by Caroline Shaw( )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 538 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"First created for New Amsterdam's 2013 Fundraiser, these remixes have never before been released to the public. The 'Remixes' EP will be released on November 18, [2016]...Composed over three summers from 2009-2011, in collaboration with Roomful of Teeth during their residencies at the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art (MASS MoCA), Caroline Shaws Partita for 8 Voices received the 2013 Pulitzer Prize in Music, and was nominated for a Grammy for Best Contemporary Classical Composition. It is the only Pulitzer awarded to an a cappella vocal work, and Shaw, a singer in the ensemble, is the youngest composer ever to receive the prize...Each movement takes a cue from the traditional baroque suite in initial meter and tone, but the familiar historic framework is soon stretched and broken through 'speech, whispers, sighs, murmurs, wordless melodies and novel vocal effects' (Pulitzer jury citation)"--Partita for 8 voices remixes, Bandcamp website
Converging lines : Eva Hesse and Sol LeWitt by Lucy R Lippard( Book )

5 editions published in 2014 in English and Italian and held by 333 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travels, along with a poignant five-page letter that he sent Hesse, attesting to his belief in her talent; a previously unpublished interview from 2001 with LeWitt about his relationship with Hesse; and an illustrated chronology drawing upon interviews, photographs, and primary documents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.'--Site Web de l'éditeur

8 editions published between 1977 and 2020 in English and Undetermined and held by 204 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Notoriously camera-shy, Lewitt refused awards and rarely granted interviews, yet in this cinematic portrait, the pioneering conceptual American artist comes alive.

Incomplete open cubes by Sol LeWitt( Book )

9 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."
No title : [the collection of Sol LeWitt] by John T Paoletti( Book )

Ficciones by Jorge Luis Borges( Book )

1 edition published in 1984 in English and held by 98 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
Sol Lewitt : between the lines by Sol LeWitt( Book )

3 editions published in 2018 in English and Italian and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With a considerable body of work spanning his entire career - from 7 famous Wall Drawings to 15 sculptures like Complex Form and Inverted Spiraling Tower - up to the photo series Autobiography, the catalogue explores the relationship between LeWitt's work and architecture. 'Between the Lines' is based on a powerful and innovative key to interpretation, aimed above all at reformulating the idea that a work must adapt to the architecture. With the collaboration by the architect Rem Koolhaas in dialogue with the curator Francesco Stocchi, it faces broad aspects of LeWitt's oeuvre, with the ambitious goal of moving beyond the division that traditionally separates architecture and art history and which characterizes the artist's entire body of work, aimed more at the process than at the final result, free from any aesthetic or idealist opinion.

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 89 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"--PrimaryInformation.org website, viewed June 14, 2016
Cock fight dance by Sol LeWitt( Book )

2 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Though Sol LeWitt's books are not generally associated with narrative content, 'Cock Fight Dance' (1980) records the beginning of a cock fight in a format resembling a flip book. Once Le Witt's idea (of documenting the fight) has been acted upon, the artist merely records the process; the actions of the birds determine the true working out of the sequence. The birds strut, fly at each other, and appear to determined to follow the fight through. Suddenly, in the last few frames, a third participant appears: a cat slowly creeps toward the two embattled birds. The book ends on the tense, unsettling note of a system set into motion only to be threatened." -- Betty Bright, "Pick up the book, turn the page and enter the system : books by Sol Le Witt." Minneapolis : Minnesota Center for Book Arts, 1988, page [10]

13 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 55 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
