description

Exhibition catalogue published in conjunction with exhibition held at the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, November 15, 2007 - February 10, 2008; traveled to The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, April 13 - July 14, 2008 ; K21 Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen, Düsseldorf, September 20, 2008 - January 4, 2009. "As Far as the Eye Can See" presents -- through photographs, video stills, and essays -- a retrospective of Lawrence Weiner's conceptual art, with essays by Donna De Salvo, Ann Goldstein, Kathryn Chiong, Liam Gillick, Ed Leffingwell, Dieter Schwarz, and Gregor Stemmrich. In her essay on the artist, Donna De Salvo writes that Weiner "names 'language + the materials referred to' as his medium, a strategy that makes it possible for him to insinuate his sculptural practice into the world, the arena he sees for his art. Over a nearly fifty-year career, Weiner has produced work in an incredibly diverse range of geographic locations and cultural systems -- which he refers to as 'points of reception' -- in both the Northern and Southern Hemispheres ... As Weiner explained in a 1998 interview, 'The Johnny Appleseed idea of art was perfect for me : Johnny Appleseed spread apple seeds across the United States by just going out on the road and spreading apple seeds. I do not know if this is true, but I would love it to be.'" "As Far as the Eye Can See" gathers these apple seeds together again in order to document Weiner's work in many locations. A bibliography accompanies the images and text.
