The Well-Shaped Phrase as Art

Yet another article on Lawrence Weiner’s Installation at the Whitney.

“Driven by the joy of language and quite a bit of humor, Mr. Weiner’s ebullient work asks tough questions about who makes or owns art, where it can occur and how long it lasts. It reminds us that while art and money may have been inextricably entwined throughout most of history, art’s real value is not measured in strings of zeros, high-priced materials or bravura skill, but in communication, experience, economy of means (the true beauty) and the inspired disturbance of all status quos.”
