Using artificial intelligence (AI) technology, Microsoft has developed The Sol LeWitt App. dedicated to the art and work of the influential American artist Sol LeWitt, the pioneer of minimalism and conceptual art, an artist who is also represented in the collections of the Museum of Contemporary Art Skopje with his donation of a portfolio with two significant series of prints.
The application is a guide in an engaging and interactive way through LeWitt’s extraordinarily productive and thematically diverse body of work, such as:
– virtual tour of his working studio in Chester, Connecticut, which is usually closed to the public;
– mapping and scanning some of his wall drawings executed in North America, Europe, Asia and Australia;
– the exploration of LeWitt’s life that shows the global influence of his art;
– the app also offers a collection of articles that shed light on 6 of LeWitt’s working topics, as well as never-before-seen audio, video and sketches from LeWitt himself.
The app was developed in collaboration with Sol LeWitt Estate and is conceptualized and curated by Lindsay Aveilhé.
The Sol LeWitt App is available for free on Google Play, App Store and Microsoft Store App.
