Content

Bronx-born postminimalist Lawrence Weiner is one of the pioneers of conceptual art, best known for his use of language as an artistic medium. Descriptive rather than prescriptive, Weiner’s work presents the viewer with an infinite number of meanings and possibilities for realization. His installation Attached by Ebb and Flow, created for Museo Nivola in Orani, Sardinia, is a striking recent example for the character of his art.

This book follows the display of Attached by Ebb and Flow at the museum. It traces Weiner’s travels through Italy from 1963 to the present and reconstructs his exhibition history as well as the relationships the artist has built with people and places across the country. And it offers new insights into the rise and consolidation of the global art world.

 

Antonella Camarda is an art historian at the University of Sassari, Italy, and director of Museo Nivola.
