Lawrence Weiner

Lawrence Wiener was born in New York in 1942. He lives and woks between Amsterdam and New York. Lawrence Weiner personalizes the artistic experience of each of his viewers. He believes that his job as the artist is to conceive an idea and possibly produce instructions, but it's the audience who finishes the construction. Starting off as a key artist in the conceptual art movement of the 1960s, he wrote this infamous "statement of intent," which dictates much of his work: 1. The artist may construct the piece; 2. The piece may be fabricated; 3. The piece need 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.
