Lawrence Weiner: Docu Short
Sun 30 April 2017, 17:00 – 17:30 BST
Glasgow Zine Fest is pleased to present a screening of a short documentary about conceptual text-based artist Lawrence Weiner. Regarded as one of the central figures in the formation of conceptual art in the 1960s, Weiner begins each day with a pint of Carlsberg, a glass of whisky, and a grilled cheese sandwich. The film follows Weiner as he discusses his work, language, materiality, and the experience of making. Come for the deep soothing voice of Lawrence Weiner, leave with an insatiable need to make something to put out into the world.
This documentary has been unearthed from the 90s, where it was taped off of someone's television. Join us for a lo-fi experience in the CCA Cinema.
