Close up of a Sheila Hicks work. #ThreadLines. Opening tomorrow night, 6-8pm. (at The Drawing Center)
This is Sol LeWitt’s only 3D Wall Drawing. The story goes that he was invited to exhibit in Japan, but when he arrived, he was given 4 pegboard walls that he couldn’t alter. Typically he paints over a wall, so he had to come up with a new idea idea on the spot. That new idea was rolling 40,000 pieces of tissue paper and inserting them into the pegboard’s holes.
