Lindsay Pollock of Art Market Views broke the news earlier this morning of an A-List edition by conceptual artist Lawrence Weiner being released on 20x200 this Wednesday.
Weiner’s work is likely to be among 20×200’s most challenging and least visually conventional collaborations. Jen Bekman, 20×200’s founder, met with Weiner last week in his studio to discuss the project. “I went to the meeting expecting to talk with him about how it might work, but he already knew what he wanted to do,” said Bekman. “He loves making work that lives in public and that a lot of people get to have relationships with.”
During his four decades of art making, Weiner has received plenty of acclaim from critics and curators. The biography listing awards and exhibitions posted on his dealer Marian Goodman’s website is seventeen pages long.
As always, subscribers to the mailing list will get the first word on the release of this edition.
