Lawrence Weiner (Phaidon Contemporary Artists)
Surveys the work of American artist Lawrence Weiner (b. 1942), one of the canonical Conceptual artists of the 1960s. He pioneered the radical proposition that the work of art could exist as a concept, without the need for physical materials which will decay and which transform art into consumer goods.
