This fall, The Aldrich will present the first solo museum exhibition of artist Eva LeWitt (b. 1985). The exhibition, the artist’s largest to date, will debut a significant, new site-specific installation commissioned by The Aldrich. LeWitt’s sculptural practice explores the visual interconnection of color, matter, shape, light, and gravity. Using materials she can control and manipulate with supporting and opposing attributes – rigid/pliable, opaque/transparent, airy/substantial, and handmade/machine built – LeWitt creates exuberant configurations that vaunt a buoyant physical agency. LeWitt’s deft sculptural arrays wondrously wed industrial materials like Plexiglas, acetate, latex, and vinyl with hand-cast and hand-dyed polyurethane foams, sponges and rubbers to form soft, sensuous, and splendidly vibrant compositions. The artist’s first publication, with an essay by exhibition curator Amy Smith-Stewart, will accompany the show.
