Lawrence Weiner, All Within the Realm of Possibility
Lawrence Weiner was one of the central figures of Conceptual art whose work challenged traditional assumptions about the nature of the art object. In this site-specific commission, Weiner points to the actions and materials that people use everyday; each beam in the work expressing a shift in mood and intention, and representing another stage in the equation that Weiner has set up. Describing the installation in an interview, he noted, "It's a matter (of) how we give value to things. Everything that can be admired is within the realm of possibility."
The installation is presented in both English and Spanish as a nod to South Florida's international population. A mid-career retrospective of Weiner's work was featured at the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York in 2007-2008.
