WRITTEN ON THE WIND

    Lugar:
    Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam

With clear references to navigation, WRITTEN ON THE WIND presents one of the most significant artists of the past fifty years through the humble but essential medium of drawing. The exhibition offers an insight into the work of Lawrence Weiner (New York, 1942) through his drawings, which are probably the least known aspect of his oeuvre. WRITTEN ON THE WIND is an exhaustive survey of the works on paper by this artist who has shown that art does not require a physical medium. Weiner employs the democratic, universal element of language to create works that range from intangible objects –his famous word sculptures– to sound pieces and film.




For the first time, MACBA presents a show dedicated to Weiner's drawings. Inspired by the gestural nature of the medium, the
graphic and visual quality of drawing is used to structure the exhibition, eschewing a chronological narrative in favour of an intimate look at the interests and obsessions of the artist, and offering a privileged insight into his work and his vision of the world.




Curators: Bartomeu Marí and Soledad Gutiérrez

Exhibition organised by Museu d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona (MACBA) and co-produced with the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam Catalogue Written on the Wind. Lawrence Weiner Drawings. Barcelona: Museu d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona (MACBA), 2013

  • Hola Soledad, me ha gustado mucho tu audio, no sólo lo que explicas sino tu voz, como la de Weiner, qué buena voz! Me hace ilusión comunicaros que he publicado unos llamémosles diálogos relacionados con Weiner en mi Facebook, no sé si continuarán pero no hay nada, creo, que se esfume completamente. Creo que se acordará de mi, nos conocimos cuando trabajaba con Gloria Moure, espero que le hagan cierta gracia. Felicidades a todos por la exposición, y un cariñoso saludo, gracias.
