Lawrence Weiner was born in 1942 in the Bronx, New York. He is regarded as the father of Conceptual Art. He still holds fast to this artistic practice, which he proclaimed in 1968 in his legendary Statement of Intent. Here Weiner declares that the production of a work of art is not necessarily bound up with the artist, but is a function of its reception. Lawrence Weiner is a master of the intelligent, poetic play on words. His principal medium – which he regards as sculpture – is the wall installation, of words and single letters. Lawrence Weiner participated in the 2012 documenta Xlll.
