Eva LeWitt: Untitled (Mesh A–J)

The Aldrich presents the first solo museum exhibition of artist Eva LeWitt (b. 1985). The exhibition, the artist’s largest to date, debuts 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, accompanies the show.

Madeline Hollander’s performance, “Your Move” is a site-specific work created in response to Eva LeWitt’s installation Untitled (Mesh A–J). The choreography presented a series of ten response-driven movement sequences designed for three dancers. Visitors were invited to come and go as they pleased throughout the performance while the choreography looped and evolved throughout the evening. “Your Move” was presented on Thursday, March 12 from 5 to 8 pm. Hollander is a New York-based artist whose work was included in the 2019 Whitney Biennial at the Whitney Museum of American Art. Original Musical Score by Celia Hollander Performers: Marielis Garcia, Lauren Newman, Asami Tumida
