About Lawrence Weiner

One of the leading figures of the Conceptual art scene in the late 1960s, Lawrence Weiner was among the first to propose a new relationship to art and to redefine the status of the artist. Born in 1942 in the Bronx, New York he now lives and works in Amsterdam and New York City. Weiner’s body of work has at its core a fundamental questioning of the conventions of objecthood in relation to the producer and its viewer. He has been using language as the primary medium for his works since the late 1960s. Presented in capital letters, his structures consisting of language, or text fragments, often accompanied by graphic marks and lines, have been exhibited around the world and interpreted into numerous languages.
