Lawrence Weiner, PLACED ON THE TIP OF A WAVE
Lawrence Weiner’s current show at L.A.’s Regen Projects II features five new works and several drawings from the conceptual artist, who is known for working in language. In a 1969 outline of the ways in which one of his pieces can exist, Weiner says that it need not be built — his text recipes are enough to create an image in the mind’s eye. The New York Times called his 2007 Whitney retrospective “required viewing for anyone interested in today’s art…” Born in the Bronx, he currently divides his time between a New York City studio and a boat in Amsterdam.
PLACED ON THE TIP OF A WAVE is up through August 15.
