Sol LeWitt was a pioneer of Conceptual Art and Minimalism. The monumental and colourful Wall Drawing #1136 from the ARTIST ROOMS collection was first installed at Fraenkel Gallery, San Francisco in 2004 and is a late example of LeWitt’s work, where vibrantly coloured bands are painted directly onto the wall of the gallery space.

The work will be installed at Turner Contemporary across two walls of the Clore Learning Studio. The gallery was designed by UK architect David Chipperfield and opened in April 2011.

ARTIST ROOMS On Tour is a partnership with Arts Council England, the Art Fund and Creative Scotland, making the ARTIST ROOMS collection of international modern and contemporary art available to galleries throughout the UK. ARTIST ROOMS is jointly owned by Tate and the National Galleries of Scotland and was established through The d’Offay Donation in 2008, with the assistance of the National Heritage Memorial Fund, the Art Fund, and the Scottish and British Government.
