This is the exhibition poster produced to coincide with Lawrence Weiner’s 2001 project across Madrid. Created specifically for the occasion, Weiner distributed a variety of text based installations from the Palacio de Cristal to the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia Library, offering a tour of the city. Functioning as public sculptures, the text works describe the materials the pieces were comprised of - a reflection of the show title Por Si Mismo/Per Se, which roughly translates to ‘in and of itself.’ As Weiner is known for, the texts were in both English and Spanish - adopting the native language of the installation site.
Lawrence Weiner, b. 1942, Bronx, New York is considered a key figure of the Conceptual Art movement. He lives and works in New York and Amsterdam.
