Written on the Wind
Influential contemporary artist, Lawrence Weiner (New York, 1942), will be featured at MACBA from March 8th to June 24th.
Language, the main component of Weiner's work, is particularly emphasized in Some Objects of Desire (2004), the large "mathematical equation" that has occupied the central wall of MACBA's atrium since 2009. One of Weiner's most emblematic works, it illustrates the artist's conviction that art is "an empirical reality based on the relations between human beings and objects and objects to objects in relation to human beings".
The current exhibition provides an intimate view of Weiner's interests and obsessions of the world. It includes over 300 cartoons, notebooks and other material that illustrate his opinions and unique outlook on life.
