Writings by Lawrence Weiner
 
An exploration of the language-based art of the internationally celebrated conceptual artist Lawrence Weiner (b. 1942). Lawrence Weiner's language-based art can appear painted across a building or sung as a lyric by a country and western band. One of the most important New York artist to emerge in the late 1960s, he explores sculptural propositions about our relationship to objects and places. Weiner's typographic presentation is also much admired by designers internationally. This is the only comprehensive monograph on Weiner's work.

Details & Dimensions

Designer Info

Lawrence Weiner was one of the original conceptual artists who emerged in America during the 1960s. Born in 1942 in the Bronx in New York City, his art is based on the premise that the idea of a work is more important than its physical reality. Weiner's texts, usually painted or applied directly on the wall, offer alternatives to depiction; they represent physical situations or philosophical concepts. Over the past 30 years, he has sometimes turned to ethical concerns as well. He works in a broad range of media including video, film, books, sound art, performance art, installation art and graphic art.
