Lawrence Weiner

Lawrence Weiner is one of the foremost figures in Conceptual art, as made clear with the Whitney Museum of American Art’s 2007 retrospective of his work, AS FAR AS THE EYE CAN SEE. For Tuesday Evenings, Weiner presents the work and ideas that have inspired and informed generations of artists and viewers since his 1968 Declaration of Intent: “(1) The artist may construct the piece. (2) The piece may be fabricated. (3) The piece may not be built. [Each being equal and consistent with the intent of the artist, the decision as to condition rests with the receiver upon the occasion of receivership.]” Weiner’s Tuesday Evenings presentation, ONE LUMP TWO LUMPS THREE LUMPS FOUR . . . (after the popular piece in the Museum’s collection) is a tremendous opportunity to learn more about the work of the artist, described in his biography as one who PARTICIPATES IN PUBLIC AND PRIVATE PROJECTS AND EXHIBITIONS IN BOTH THE NEW AND OLD WORLD MAINTAINING THAT: ART IS THE EMPIRICAL FACT OF THE RELATIONSHIPS OF OBJECTS TO OBJECTS IN RELATION TO HUMAN BEINGS AND NOT DEPENDENT UPON HISTORICAL PRECEDENT FOR EITHER USE OR LEGITIMACY.
