In his 1969 manifesto "Sentences on Conceptual Art," Sol LeWitt stated, “Conceptual artists are mystics rather than rationalists. They leap to conclusions that logic cannot reach.” Learn more about Haegue Yang’s practice, with an emphasis on key works influenced by Conceptual Art. These include her ongoing series Sol LeWitt Upside Down, featured in the exhibition Minimalism: Space. Light. Object.
This talk is held in conjunction with the exhibition Minimalism: Space. Light. Object., which runs from 16 November 2018 to 14 April 2019 at National Gallery Singapore.
