360: Artists, Critics, Curators - Lawrence Weiner

| September 20, 2012 | Calendar

Lawrence Weiner could be labeled one of the most significant and iconic artists of this generation. Throughout his practice, he has pursued inquiries into language and a radical redefinition of the artist/viewer relationship. Translating his investigations into linguistic structures and visual systems across varied formats and manifestations, he has produced books, films, videos, performances and audio works.

The belief at the core of Weiner's work is that art is a material reality between human beings and objects and between sets of objects in relation to human beings. Weiner considers language to be a sculptural material and believes that a construction in language can function as sculpture as adequately as a fabricated object.

He explains his perspective as the featured artist for the Nasher Sculpture Center's 360: Artists, Critics, Curators series, which begins at 1PM.
