Lawrence Weiner

Lawrence Weiner was born in New York. In the late 1960s he was one of the most important exponents of Conceptual Art. Conceptual artists rebelled against the commercialisation of art and the recognition paid to the unique art object. They shifted their attention from the outward appearance of the work to the idea, which usually took definite form only as a written text. Weiner’s work consists mainly of concise texts and short ‘statements’ that describe a movement, action or process. He presents the works on walls in galleries and museums, in public spaces, on posters, in manifestos and in books and multiples. Lawrence Weiner participated in the 2004 Access for All project.
