inspired by both the practice and primary source research from multiple visits to the long term installation Sol LeWitt: A Wall Drawing Retrospective at MASS MoCA. Lewitt’s Wall Drawing 422 will be specifically relates the exhibition’s centerpiece, a series of 15 cylinder vases. In addition

to his work in ceramics, Pincus will presents drawings for the first time, revealing his step-by-step thought process. Art in the Age of Influence is a series of solo exhibitions presented by

Ferrin Contemporary during 2020-21 considering the impact of artist’s source materials on their process and practice.
