Equal Dimensions

December 12, 2015 – January 30, 2016

Featuring works by

Josef Albers, Richard Artschwager, Robert Barry, Mel Bochner, Peter Downsbrough, Erwin Heerich, Donald Judd, Sol LeWitt, Allan McCollum, Giulio Paolini, Liliana Porter, Stephen Prina, Kay Rosen, Robert Ryman, Fred Sandback

Equal Dimensions, began as a simple attempt to show works that utilize the square, yet quickly developed into a presentation of pieces that, while using rectilinear forms, are more about equality through comparison than just formal similarities.

Specifically, a chance opportunity to exhibit Erwin Heerich’s 1967 cardboard sculpture (that presents six different sized variants on one arrangement) called to mind numerous related works, both from that time (Josef Albers, Liliana Porter, Robert Ryman, Fred Sandback) and also from a later date (Artschwager, Barry, Bochner, Downsbrough, LeWitt, Judd, McCollum, Paolini, Prina, Rosen), and so an exhibition was formed.

Each artist has chosen which basic building blocks of formal composition to utilize (the exhibition runs athe gamut from full-on pictorial representation to absolutely formal abstraction) in order to give viewers the opportunity to not only identify the materials, actions and images used, but to investigate purposes and results through intellectual and perceptual experiences.

The intention in 1968 was to do an edition of 25. Documentation shows that five of each were made in 1968. In the archives of the estate, labels (with edition numbers in Fred’s handwriting) were found for 7 of the blue, 7 of the orange, and 8 of the violet pieces. All the numbers between 6/25 – 18/25 cannot be verified by the estate. 4 artist’s proofs and one exhibition copy exist as well.
