Hyde Cabinet #7: The Wall Is Prepared features documentation from the making of Sol LeWitt’s Wall Drawing #1202 Scribbles: Volumes, as drawn, in 2006, on a wall in the Tang’s Bernhard Atrium. The exhibition reveals the preparation behind LeWitt’s drawing in an attempt to compare process with product. Does displaying the documentation of LeWitt’s conceptual work create a more complete expression or understanding than the drawing on the wall? Does seeing the process behind LeWitt’s drawing change the experience for a viewer?
The Hyde Cabinet, named in honor of Megan Hyde, former Tang Educator for College and Public Programs and Curatorial Assistant (2008–2016), is an exhibition case curated by members of the Tang’s Student Advisory Council.
