ART COLOGNE - Sol Lewitt - SENSIBLE event

The Sensible collection and the works of Sol Lewitt will share a single space and the attention of the many architects and designers who will be attending “Sol Lewitt Vernissage” in Cologne in April 23.
During “Art Cologne”, the one-week modern and contemporary art fair held at the Cologne Exhibition Centre April 21 through 25, Sensible will encounter the works of the artist who inspired the design of the collection at The New Yorker Hotel.
Sol Lewitt is one of the most important members of the Conceptual Art movement and the man who came up with a true manifesto on the subject: his “Paragraphs on Conceptual Art”, published in 1967. He firmly supported and expressed in his art the idea that art, as the product of a mental rather than a practical process, should have a certain degree of independence from the form in which it reaches its audience.
For a conceptual artist such as Sol Lewitt, the medium through which a work of art is presented, or the context in which it is located, must involve some form of interaction with the spectator, viewed as an active entity. A catalogue, an invitation to an event or an ordinary postcard can take the place of an art exhibition or form a part of its context, consolidating the concept of art as a medium for providing information.
The books presented at the Cologne event, from Egidio Marzona’s collection, offer very important testimony to Sol Lewitt’s work, in the form of first editions dating from the ‘60s and ’70s, most of which were personally overseen by the American artist.
