Lawrence Wiener ALL IN DUE COURSE / South London Gallery
26th Sept-26th November 2104
“Though recognised as one of the central figures pioneering conceptual art in the 1960s, he identifies himself not as a conceptualist but as a sculptor whose medium is “language + the materials referred to”. Since the 1970s Weiner has been best known for his striking wall ‘sculptures’. Mainly using paint or vinyl, Weiner’s works carve walls with thought, presenting provocative texts that are open to interpretation by the viewer.”
