An inside look at LeWitt in The Believer

Of all the recent articles on the LeWitt show, my favorite so far is Chris Cobb’s recounting in The Believer of his experience being one of the lead installers of the retrospective. (Only an abstract is available online, but we’re selling the issue in Hardware.)

You’ll get to learn all sorts of facts, like “Once the project started, there would be up to three people a day doing nothing but sharpening pencil leads.” Or “It also occurs to me that [Leonard] Nimoy, like LeWitt, had a fictional self—for Nimoy it was the dispassionate and logical Spock, for LeWitt it was his somewhat impersonal and abstract geometric wall drawings.” (Read the article to understand that one.)
