Lawrence Weiner at Lisson Gallery, London


Lawrence Weiner has recently opened a solo show at Lisson Gallery, London (6 February – 15 March). The show includes works from 2007 (titles below) and expands on his recent touring retrospective 'AS FAR AS THE EYE CAN SEE', which opened at the Whitney Museum of American Art last November and will tour to MoCA Los Angeles (13 April – 14 July) and K21 in Düsseldorf, Germany (20 September 2008 – 11 January 2009).

In the autumn Latitudes will curate a project with Weiner which will be presented in Barcelona at the Nivell 0 space in Fundació Suñol.

The first Contemporary Art Project (PAC in Spanish) wants to make itself distinctive from the circuit of international biennials and art festivals by promoting a series of seminars for the duration of the project ('Heterocronías, Temporalitites in contemporary art practices' with guests including Pamela M. Lee, Peter Osborne, Manuel Cruz, Gary Shapiro and José Luis Villacañas), a film season in the regional filmoteca, and by offering six 3-month residency grants to Murcian artist to go to GlogauAIR, Berlin; Gasworks, London and Duende, Rotterdam; on top of the usual guided tours organised for this kind of events.
