ARTWORLD ADVICE IN ACTION — LETTER FROM SOL LEWITT TO EVA HESSE PERFORMED LIVE

Leave a comment

Whether you’re an artist or a philosopher–or both!–perhaps you’ll find some useful advice in this letter written by Sol LeWitt to Eva Hesse in 1965. Reading the letter on stage at a London event called Letters Live, Benedict Cumberbatch passionately brings the words to life: “Learn to say ‘Fuck You’ to the world once in a while,” he yells. “You have every right to.”
