Lawrence Weiner:

Nov 15, 2007–Feb 10, 2008

Lawrence Weiner: AS FAR AS THE EYE CAN SEE marks the first retrospective exhibition mounted in the United States of the work of Lawrence Weiner. Though often associated with his founding role in the Conceptual art movement of the 1960s, Weiner is a prolific artist whose growing body of work is profoundly relevant today. In their generosity and simplicity, Weiner's ideas and goals have reshaped the terrain of contemporary art. This exhibition, like the scope of Weiner’s oeuvre, is about choice, about personal experience, and about looking.

"Lawrence Weiner's mind-stretching 40-year retrospective . . . is respite, wake-up call and purification rite all in one. It should be required viewing for anyone interested in today's art."
