STARS DON’T STAND STILL IN THE SKY
– Lawrence Weiner (1942–2021)
It is with great sadness that we acknowledge the loss of our dear friend Lawrence Weiner, who was a titan in art and a visionary in our lifetime. He passed away on December 2 at the age of 79.
Lawrence was born in the Bronx in 1942. His radical approach to dematerializing the art object paved the way for many language-based and conceptual artists to come, rewriting the course of art history. His generosity and intelligence engendered so many things, including the beginnings of our gallery in 1989. It has been an honor to work with him so closely over the years, and we continue to be humbled by his kindness and his brilliance.
We will miss him dearly, and our heartfelt condolences go out to Alice and Kirsten and Henry.
