London – 2006

Wall Drawings brought together three iconic artists, Robert Barry, Daniel Buren and Sol LeWitt, whose work is seminal to the Minimalist and Conceptual art movements of the 1960′s and 1970′s. In a space familiar for it’s monumental sculpture, these three artists were asked to interact with the existing structure of the gallery. Lance Fung who curated this exhibition was inspired by the gallery designed by the architects Foster and Partners, which lead him to conceive and develop this exciting show for London.

“As this will be my first winter in London, the rumors of the grey and dreary days made me consider the gallery space as a work of art by integrating the vision of Robert, Daniel and Sol who always manage to bring light and spirit into any space they occupy. I want to create a completely different experience for those who visit the gallery on a regular basis. It is such a unique exhibition space that filling it with dynamic and colorful works by artists that I both respect and am friends with, seems a fantastic opportunity to explore the two intersecting art historical movements. Views through the gallery as well as to the river outside become an intrinsic part of the exhibition’s visual and ephemeral experience which is further enhanced by the fact the walls will be repainted white after the exhibition closes.”
