Artist or Maker: Lawrence Weiner (American, b. 1942)

Literature: Lawrence Weiner's texts have appeared in all sorts of places over the last five decades and although he sees himself as a sculptor rather than a conceptualist, he is among the trailblazers of the 1960s to present art as language. He defines his sculptural medium simply as 'language + the material referred to', in the sense that language is a material for construction. Accordingly, his first book Statements (1968) contains 24 typewritten descriptions of works, where only a few had actually been made, suggesting that a work's existence requires a readership rather than a physical presence. Weiner's Statement of Intent (1969) even more clearly identifies 'universal availability' as a guiding principle.
