Tate Liverpool presented a major wall drawing by influential American artist Sol LeWitt as part of the first UK tour of ARTIST ROOMS. Sol LeWitt (1928-2007) was a pioneer of conceptual art and minimalism. He believed that "ideas can be works of art; they are in a chain of development that may eventually find some form. All ideas need not be made physical". In 1969, he began to conceive guidelines for two-dimensional works drawn directly on the wall. Over 1,200 of his wall drawings have been executed so far, and his art continues to influence artists and fascinate audiences in various sites across the world. At Tate Liverpool the monumental and colourful Wall Drawing #1136 2004 spanned the twenty-two metre long wall of the ground floor gallery.
