As the wrong dealers say, The Wrong Gallery is the back door to contemporary art, and its always locked. (born February 10, 1942) is one of the central figures in the formation of conceptual art in the 1960s. His work often takes the form of typographic texts.Weiner was born in the Bronx, New York the son of a candy-store owner. After graduating from school at 16, he had a variety of jobshe worked on an oil tanker, on docks, and unloading railroad cars. After studying at college for less than a year, he travelled throughout North America before returning to New York. Weiner is regarded as a founding figure of Post Minimalism's Conceptual art, which includes artists like Douglas Huebler, Robert Barry, Joseph Kosuth, and Sol LeWitt.
Weiner began his career as an artist as a very young man at the height of Abstract Expressionism. His debut public work/exhibition was at the age of 19, with what he called Cratering Piece. An action piece, the work consisted of explosives set to ignite simultaneously in the four corners of a field in Marin County, California. That work, as Weiner later developed his practice as a painter, became an epiphany for the turning point in his career. His work in the early 1960s included six years of making explosions in the landscape of California to create craters as individual sculptures.He is also known during his early work for creating gestures described in simple statements leading to the ambiguity of whether the artwork was the gesture or the statement describing the gesture: e. Two minutes of spray paint directly on the floor.. " or " A 36" x 36" removal of lathing or support wall... Came up with his Paragraphs on Conceptual Art, Weiner formulated his "Declaration of Intent" (1968). The artist may construct the piece.
The piece may be fabricated. The piece need not be built. Each being equal and consistent with the intent of the artist the decision as to condition rests with the receiver upon the occasion of receivership. Please look at my other items including rare modern and contemporary art and design pieces.
