Converging Lines: Eva Hesse and Sol LeWitt
September 12, 2015 - January 10, 2016
This exhibition celebrates the close friendship between two of the most significant American artists of the post-war era: Eva Hesse (1936–1970) and Sol LeWitt (1928–2007). While their practices diverged in innumerable, seemingly antithetical ways—LeWitt’s art is associated with ideas and rule-based conceptual art and Hesse’s is associated with the body and her own hand—Converging Lines highlights the crucial impact that their more than decade-long association had on both their lives and work.
Converging Lines: Eva Hesse and Sol LeWitt is organized by the Blanton Museum of Art and made possible by the Henry Luce Foundation, Lannan Foundation, Agnes Gund, Jeanne and Michael Klein, and the Dedalus Foundation.
