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.
