A key figure in the development of Conceptual art in the 1960s Sol LeWitt set out “to recreate art to start from square one.” To LeWitt this meant prioritizing an idea over its execution. Throughout his career he explored various systems for testing these ideas subjecting geometric forms and linear patterns to various permutations to create objects prints drawings and installations. The SUPERGEOMETRIC collection from the UNIQLO at MoMA collaboration envisions the essential elements of geometry—line form and color—and their potential to take on new forms. Sol Lewitt’s work is represented in MoMA’s collection.
