A pioneer of conceptual Art, Lawrence Weiner began making art in 1960 and remains one of the most dynamic artists working today. By 1968, Lawrence radically shifted his practice from making objects to producing work in language and was employing language and typography as a primary vehicle for his conceptual work, helping to redefine the artist/viewer relationship. Lawrence Weiners work has been exhibited extensively in museums and galleries worldwide. Major solo exhibitions include those at Dia Center for the Arts, New York, NY; Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, MN; Tate Modern, London, UK; Museo Tamayo de Arte Contemporáneo, Mexico City, Mexico and the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington, DC. In 2007, the Whitney Museum of American Art organized the first major retrospective of the artists work in the United States. Weiner lives and works in New York.
