The Arteholic program of screenings, prepared by Garage and in collaboration with the PERFORM film festival, will continue with a musical performance by Vladimir Gorlinskiy, Kirill Shirokov, and Sasha Elina, followed by a screening of Chris Teerink’s documentary Sol LeWitt.
“I really believe that art is not something that's laid down as frosting on the cake of society,” Sol LeWitt said in one of his interviews. “I think that aesthetics and ethics are really very much the same kind of thing.” One of the pioneering pioneers of American conceptualistsConceptualism, LeWitt worked with the geometry of things and spaces. H—his abstract three-dimensional objects and monumental wall paintings were not so much expressive gestures, which are often expected from an artist, but attempts at arranging chaos into an order.
Before the documentary screening, Moscow experimental musicians will present a program of two 1960s avant-garde compositions by Steve Reich and Alvin Lucier, and their own musical interpretation of Sol LeWitt’s work.
