As a crucial figure of the Conceptual Art movement, along with Sol LeWitt, Joseph Kosuth and John Baldessari, American artist Lawrence Weiner focused on language as a tool to transform an existing space or environment. In simple lines, his text-based work holds subversive layers – determined and rich in its interpretation. Weiner’s works are in the collections of the Art Institute of Chicago, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York, the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris, Tate Gallery in London, among others.
