Lawrence Weiner : Posters : November 1965-April 1986
Weiner, Lawrence and Buchloh, Benjamin H.D.. Lawrence Weiner : Posters : November 1965-April 1986. Halifax, NS: The Press of the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design; Toronto, Ont.: Art Metropole, 1986.
In his essay, Buchloh contextualizes Weiner's posters in relation to his earlier abandoned work in painting and sculpture to the practices of painting and sculpture in general and to a longer tradition of avant-garde activity traversing Dada, Duchamp, Johns and Andre. The posters are also discussed in terms of their linguistic functioning, and notions of process, place, commodification and mass culture. Statements by the artist appear thoughout the book.
