Lawrence Weiner "XX XY" Blocks


Artist: Lawrence Weiner b. 1942, Bronx, N.Y.
Title: XX XY Product: 9 Wooden Blocks In collaboration with Yvon Lambert Gallery Edition: 1000

Weiner was born in the Bronx, New York. His first solo show was a series of explosions in Mill Valley, California 1960. He is also known during his early work for creating gestures described in simple statements leading to the ambiguity of whether the artwork was the gesture or the statement describing the gesture: e.g.“Two minutes of spray paint directly on the floor..” or “ A 36” x 36" removal of lathing or support wall…“ (both 1968).

Since the early 1970s, wall installations have been Weiner’s primary medium, and he has shown at the Leo Castelli gallery. Nevertheless, Weiner works in a wide variety of media, including video, film, books, sound art using audio tape, sculpture, performance art, installation art, and graphic art.
