Day 7 is for me one of the most important ones. People following this blog know of my admiration for Sol LeWitt and there are 2 sculptures i would like to point out. Both have my personal interest, because these can be found nearby and were made not too far apart in time from each other. One is in the Caldic collection, the other in the collection of the Gemeentemuseum. The first is on permanent view, the work in the collection of the Gemeentemuseum is rarely exhibited , because of the shear size. You need a ground floor of roughly 40 x 20 meters to show all element together. This work, Serial project no. 1, set B, was acquired in the eighties, but is rarely shown, because it needs space and space is a rare commodity within the buildings of the Gemeentemuseum. Perhaps now that they have covered the inner garden , they could dedicate this space to the sculpture? it would make great use of this space and would be a far better solution to use this covered area instead of placing some tables for a coffee shop and a little bookstand.

To end….Gemeentemuseum make the Serial project no.1 set B visible for all. Make it on permanent view please.
