Join artist Eva LeWitt and Hirshhorn curator Anne Reeve to discuss the ways in which everyday materials can be used to make unique art experiences.
Eva LeWitt explores the formal properties and evocative potential of everyday materials. In a departure from the cool, machinelike tone embraced by many Minimalist artists working in genderations prior, LeWitt brings industrial materials into the twenty-first century. She experiments with recognizable materials such as rope, foam, and plastic sheeting in an intimate and playful way, often using bright colors and creating unique geometries. The result is often a surprising and mesmerizing experience for the viewer, such as a sculpture that tricks the eye or installation that reimagines a space.
LeWitt’s Untitled (Orange Oval) is on view in Put It This Way: (Re)Visions of the Hirshhorn Collection, on view at the museum through Fall 2023.
7:50 pm EST | Zoom broadcast opens
8 pm EST | Eva LeWitt in conversation with Anne Reeve
