Whether or not you go, in Sol LeWitt: Structures, 1965-2006 the artist's modular works are traced from their simplest manifestation in a single large-scale cube through multiple variations, with examples from the 1960s through the 1990s. Works from the 1980s onward explore the three-dimensional possibilities of diverse geometric forms, such as stars, and the introduction of new materials, including concrete block and fiberglass, stimulating experimentation with non-geometric, irregular forms on an increasing scale. The book includes essays that provide curatorial and critical context for the structures, and offer fresh art-historical commentary -- ranging from the problematic of site for LeWitt's initial structures to the relationship between abstract conceptual systems, architecture, and urban space. Also included is a never before published conversation among the artist, Baume, and Jonathan Flatley. Color plates record the works on display in Lower Manhattan's City Hall Park, supplemented by archival and historical documentation
