Sol LeWitt's Life and Work

Dutch filmmaker Chris Teerink talks about conceptual artist Sol LeWitt, who was a notoriously camera-shy, self-effacing, and generous soul and is among the 20th century’s most important conceptual artists. In his documentary “Sol LeWitt,” Teerink weaves together rare archival material with footage of the 2011 installation of Wall Drawing #801: Spiral—a white line spiraling down the black wall of a cupola for more than three miles.
