Louis Kahn, Sol LeWitt, and a Sculptural Conversation
Walk and Talk
The Gallery reopened its main building, designed by American architect Louis Kahn, in December 2006 after a truly stunning renovation. Director Jock Reynolds speaks with museum educator Aja Armey about the beauty, geometry, and light of the architect’s restored vision, as well as a number of highlights in the Gallery's collection.
Sound Off: Art and Music
Yale undergraduate Elyse Nelson sparks a conversation between composer Jacob Cooper and artist Elizabeth Gray as they explore the relationship between music and art, focusing on the work of composer Steve Reich and artist Sol LeWitt.
Responding to Kahn
Michael Dubzian, an undergraduate at Yale, discusses the student-organized exhibition Responding to Kahn: A Sculptural Conversation (on view through July 8, 2007). Artists Annette Lemieux, Allison Saar, and Joel Shapiro, whose works are featured in the exhibition, and student curator Sydney Skelton offer ideas about the question “What kinds of dialogues can arise between building and object, artist and architect?”
