American artist Lawrence Weiner is one of the central figures in the formation of conceptual art. His work often takes the form of typographic texts.

This catalogue focuses on Lawrence Weiner’s works on paper.

Drawing has been an important part of his extensive career, and the primary focus of this catalogue is to trace his works on paper.

Weiner’s drawing oeuvre, ranging from notebooks containing installation plans, book layouts and notes, to formal drawing works, providing insight into the artist’s view of the world, and thus, into the core of his work.

Weiner designed a plate section, which consists of more than 120 drawings presented within sequences of gestural graphics, to provide a narrative, ‘drawn’ chapter for Written on the Wind in collaboration with book designer Filiep Tacq.
