Young’s work is also featured in “An Exchange with Sol LeWitt” a collaborative show taking place simultaneously at Cabinet Magazine in Brooklyn and at MASS MoCA in North Adams, MA, January 21, 2011 – March 5, 2011. “The story of Sol LeWitt’s exchanges with other artists is widely known. Though most artists engage in this process at one point or another, LeWitt seemed fully committed to it as an artistic code of conduct, a way of life…Such exchanges were not limited to well-known artists — LeWitt consistently traded works with admirers whom he did not know but who had nevertheless sent their work to him, as well as amateur artists with whom he interacted in his daily life. LeWitt’s exchanges —- he responded to every work he received by sending back one of his own -— fostered an ongoing form of artistic communion and, in some cases, a source of support and patronage.” (from Mass MOCA’s website) Young’s work appears at Cabinet at 300 Nevins Street, Brooklyn and is open to viewing Tuesday to Saturday, 12–6 pm.
