Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Lawrence Weiner's art can appear painted across an entire building, floating inside a souvenir biro or sung as a lyric by a Country and Western band. One of the canonical conceptual artists of the 1960s, this American-born artist was among the first to 'dematerialize' the object of art into the realm of language and ideas. He composes texts which describe process, material and structure whilst evoking a poetic drama which unfolds in the reader's mind. Using a utilitarian yet elegant typeface and stark monochrome or vivid colours, his works have a striking formal beauty. Dedicated to the circulation of art and ideas, a single statement of Weiner's can take the form of myriad media ranging from paint to video. This book is the first comprehensive survey of an internationally celebrated artist who continues to make new commissions around the world.

Synopsis:

Surveys the work of one of the canonical Conceptual artists of the 1960s, American artist Lawrence Weiner. He pioneered the radical proposition that the work of art could exist as a concept, without the need for physical materials which will decay and which transform art into consumer goods.
