Lisson Gallery

For the 'Wall Show' (10 December 1970 – 30 January 1971), curated by Nicholas Logsdail, artists were invited to make a proposal for one of 20 blank walls, spread across two gallery spaces. Each drawing or instructional work was realised for the duration of the exhibition and also published in an accompanying catalogue. Works included Bob Law’s ‘drawing machine’ on a spooling roll of cartridge paper, a removal of a section of plasterboard above a fireplace by Lawrence Weiner, a quote for professionally repainting a wall by Barry Flanagan, as well as a Sol LeWitt wall drawing, a gridded wallpaper pasting by Richard Wentworth and a ‘white line of a hand’s breadth’ as proposed by Blinky Palermo.
