Lawrence Weiner in conversation

Conceptual art guru, Lawrence Weiner in conversation with David Batchelor

Since 1960, the American artist Lawrence Weiner has been extending the boundaries and definitions of artistic practice, and is a key figure in the development of conceptual art. Weiner focuses on the interaction between artwork and the audience who encounter it. Much of his practice takes the form of language. His statements have been inscribed as written text on gallery walls, spoken as dialogue in films and videos, printed in books or posters, sung and tattooed on the skin. To celebrate the opening of Inherent in the Rhumb Line, his new exhibition at the National Maritime Museum, Lawrence Weiner will discuss his work with contemporary artist David Batchelor.

David Batchelor is an artist and writer based in London. Batchelor makes three-dimensional works, photographs and drawings that relate to a long-term interest in colour and urbanism. Recent exhibitions include Shiny Dirty at the Ikon Gallery Birmingham (2004), the 26th Bienal De Sao Paulo (2004), Days Like These: Tate Britain Triennial of Contemporary Art, Tate Britain, London (2003). Chromophobia (2000), Batchelor’s book on colour and the fear of colour in the West, has been translated into seven languages. He is a Senior Tutor at the Royal College of Art, London.
