Visit the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art this season and experience an incredible painting by one of the masters of conceptual art. Sol LeWitt’s spectacular wall drawing will cover three walls in the Gallery, surrounding you in a world of vibrant colours.
Drawings such as these exist as a set of instructions that are then carried out by a team at the Gallery who make the drawing themselves and become part of the creative process. As different people create the works each time and in different locations, no piece is ever the same. Not only this but, unlike most works of art, LeWitt’s pieces are made by painting directly on to the walls then painted over at a later date.
See Wall Drawing #1136 from the ARTIST ROOMS collection while you can – open from 17 December.
