One of the leading figures of the Conceptual art scene in the late 1960s
Lawrence Weiner, one of the central figures in the formation of conceptual art has over the past five decades investigated forms of display and distribution that challenge traditional assumptions about the nature of the art object. His primary medium has been wall sculptures that consist of painted non descript lettering, with the elements described in his texts serving as material. His carpet features the text “FROM BEFORE AND AFTER”, juxtaposed with graphic elements. The carpet is made and hand knotted out of 100% silk.
His works are in the collections of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York; the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.; the Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris and the Tate Gallery, London, among others.
