James Whittaker, Sales and Marketing Director, will present a lightening talk titled "The Digital Catalogue Raisonné" on Wednesday, July 12, during Session 4 at 4:14PM.

Editor Lindsay Aveilhé will give a presentation on the work for Sol LeWitt's catalogue raisonné at Pratt Institute on March 8, 2017 at 6 PM. The event is co-sponsored by the school's Fine Arts department, History of Art and Design department, and Library.
In LeWitt’s 1971 article "Doing Wall Drawings," he stated, "The artist and the draftsman become collaborators in making the art. Each person draws a line differently and each person understands words differently." Wall Drawing #990, currently installed at the Pratt Institute Library, is one of over 1,350 wall drawings to be included in the Sol LeWitt Wall Drawings Catalogue Raisonné, and it provides a wonderful example of the lasting legacy of collaboration and renewal in Sol LeWitt’s wall drawing practice. As the Sol LeWitt Wall Drawings Catalogue Raisonné approaches its publication date, this presentation will describe the process, the discoveries, and the challenges of presenting a body of work that, by its very nature, evolves.
Lindsay Aveilhé is Editor of the Sol LeWitt Wall Drawings Catalogue Raisonné, which will be published in Fall 2017 by Artifex Press. The catalogue will be the definitive list of LeWitt's most celebrated body of work, and will include several newly discovered wall drawings as well as previously unpublished installation histories, photography, and multimedia. A New York-based independent curator, Aveilhé's projects include Sol LeWitt and Lucy McKenzie at the Artist’s Institute, Another Place (MFA Alumni exhibition) at 205 Hudson Street Gallery, Hunter College, and Excavation, a 3-part exhibition of the Pratt MFA department. She was previously assistant curator at Issue Project Room and a researcher for Oxford University Press and Fairchild Books.
