'Wall pieces'

30 July – 29 November 1998

Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney

In 1998, twenty-one years after his first visit to Australia to create Project 6, Sol LeWitt undertook a second Kaldor project, this time involving a major exhibition of his work at Sydney’s Museum of Contemporary Art. In stark contrast to the 1977 Wall drawings at the Art Gallery of New South Wales and National Gallery of Victoria, which had reflected his early interest in pared-back variations on form and colour, LeWitt’s new Wall pieces for Project 11 incorporated vast bands of gloss and matt acrylic blacks and undulating wave-like forms painted in bright primary and secondary colours.
