    Editor Lindsay Aveilhé and Director of Research Chris Vacchio will participate in LeWitt x10 on November 17, 2018, a full day of events at MASS MoCA in celebration of the 10 year anniversary of Sol LeWitt: A Wall Drawing Retrospective. Aveilhé and Vacchio will give lectures on the role of the drafter in LeWitt's wall drawings for the symposium "The Machine That Makes the Art?: Interpretation, Collaboration, and Sol LeWitt’s Wall Drawings" at 11 a.m. The symposium will also include Susan Cross, Anna Lovatt, Charles W. Haxthausen, Anna Lovatt, and Veronica Roberts. In the afternoon, Aveilhé and Vacchio will demonstrate the recently published Sol LeWitt Wall Drawings Catalogue Raisonné.


    LECTURES:


    Determined by the Drafter: Collaboration within Reason
    Lindsay Aveilhé

    The framework LeWitt devised for his wall drawing practice in 1968 was based on key tenets found in his “Paragraphs on Conceptual Art” (1967), such as the primacy of idea over material and the use of pre-set plans. However, unlike LeWitt’s earlier works, the wall drawings relied on a somewhat precarious chain of events for their genesis, including interpretation by a drafter. This talk will look at the “Determined by the drafter” works to illustrate how LeWitt addressed the collaborative role of the drafter in his wall drawings.


    Studio on Site: LeWitt's Drafters as Collaborators
    Chris Vacchio

    This talk will track the increasing professionalization of the wall drawings’ drafters from the late 1970s on. LeWitt’s transition from written instructions to drawn plans lessened the room for interpretation, but necessitated a greater degree of collaboration, as his assistants developed and refined specific techniques to install his wall drawings. This group of trusted assistants also acted as extensions of LeWitt’s ethos at installations, reporting back to him and helping translate his concepts into physical form.

    We are excited to announce the European launch of the Sol LeWitt Wall Drawings Catalogue Raisonné on Friday, November 2, at 4 p.m. at the FLAT Art Book Fair in Turin, Italy.

    LeWitt lived in Italy for much of his life, and hundreds of his wall drawings have been installed across the country. After an introduction to Artifex Press by President David Grosz and a demonstration of the catalogue raisonné by Editor Lindsay Aveilhé and Director of Research Chris Vacchio, curator and scholar Adachiara Zevi will give a talk that contextualizes LeWitt’s wall drawings historically and critically. This will be followed by a panel discussion with Zevi, artist Nicola De Maria, and gallerists Valentina Bonomo, Alessandra Bonomo, and Alfonso Artiaco, covering LeWitt’s move to Italy, the relationships he built across the country, and their impact on his work.

    Carina Evangelista, Editor of the Chuck Close Catalogue Raisonné, and Ashley Levine, Archivist/Digital Resource Manager at Artifex Press will present the talk “Chronicling Artists' Oeuvres: The Critical Role of Photography in Catalogue Raisonné Research” during the panel titled Traveling and Documenting at PhotoHistory/PhotoFuture, a three-day conference of the archaeology and future of photography hosted by Rochester Institute of Technology. The talk will take place on Saturday, April 21, at 9:45 a.m.

    Evangelista and Levine will demonstrate the documentary role and challenges of photography in compiling the digital catalogues raisonnés of Chuck Close, Tim Hawkinson, Robert Irwin, Sol LeWitt, Agnes Martin, and Lucas Samaras, and simultaneously, the use of photography in their oeuvres. Close, afflicted with face blindness, has spent 50 years painting the human face with photography as the bedrock of his practice. Hawkinson, known primarily for sculptures, produced a number of photo collages. Samaras, a photographer himself, created boxes filled with boldly colored and heavily textured objects, many mixed with photographs. LeWitt famously privileged the idea for an artwork over the object, yet used documentary photography of his Wall Drawings as key evidence of these ephemeral works. Martin’s minimal paintings and Irwin’s spectral installations test the threshold of visibility, often defying the camera’s lens.

    Other presentations during Traveling and Documenting will be “Hocken Album 052: Creating Photographs with a Difference in Southern New Zealand” by Anna Petersen, Hocken Collections, University of Otago, Dunedin, New Zealand; and “George Eastman Goes to Newfoundland and Labrador” by Edith Cuerrier, The Rooms Provincial Archive of Newfoundland and Labrador/George Eastman Museum. The panel will be moderated by Kari Cameron, RIT, School of Communication.

  • 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.

    Artifex Press and artist Tim Hawkinson are pleased to announce the publication of Tim Hawkinson's digital catalogue raisonné. To mark the public launch of this catalogue, the New York Public Library will host a discussion between Tim Hawkinson; Hannah Barton, Editor of the Tim Hawkinson catalogue raisonné; and Peggy Fogelman, Acting Director of the Morgan Library and Museum, on March 10, 2015, at 6PM (doors open at 5:30PM). An introduction by David Grosz, President of Artifex Press, opens the event.

    The event features a demonstration of the catalogue, an in-depth look at the breadth of Hawkinson's career, and an exploration of the collaborative formation of the publication. The Tim Hawkinson catalogue raisonné is the latest example of Artifex Press’s “living catalogues raisonnés,” the publisher’s new take on this essential, authoritative artist catalogue, which documents in real time the most up-to-date incarnation of an artist’s complete body of work.
