Wall Drawing #370: Ten Geometric Figures (including right triangle, cross, X, diamond) with three-inch parallel bands of lines in two directions // Sol Lewitt // first installation, Illinois Institute of Technology, Chicago, March 1982 // India ink
Black and white geometric figures sprawl across one wall in the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. Conceptual artist Sol Lewitt designed “Wall Drawing #370,” however it was installed by Modern Circle. This is no ordinary work that is hung on the wall. In this piece, Modern Circle used Lewitt’s plan to paint the ten geometric figures directly onto the museum wall.
