Lawrence Weiner (°1942, New York, USA) is a well known American visual artist who lives in New York (USA). He is known as one of the central figures in the formation of conceptual art in the 1960s in the United States. His work often takes the form of typographic texts. Lawrence Weiner’s texts have appeared in all sorts of places over the last five decades and although he sees himself as a sculptor rather than a conceptualist, he is among the trailblazers of the 1960s to present art as language. He defines his sculptural medium simply as ‘language + the material referred to’, in the sense that language is a material for construction. Solo exhibitions include Kunsthaus Bregenz, Bregenz, Austria (2016), Regen Projects, Los Angeles, USA (2016), Blenheim Palace, Oxfordshire, UK (2015), Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam (2014), Museu d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona, Spain (2013), Haus der Kunst, Munich, Germany (2007), Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, NY, USA (2007); Museo Tamayo Arte Contemporaneo, Mexico City, Mexico (2004), Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg, Germany (2000), Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, USA (1994) and Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington DC, USA (1990).

Among many honours he was awarded fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts (1976, 1983), a Guggenheim Fellowship (1994), the Wolfgang Hahn Prize, Museum Ludwig, Cologne (1995), a Skowhegan Medal for Painting/Conceptual Art (1999) and an Honorary Doctorate of Humane Letters from the Graduate Center, City University of New York (2013).
Edition Bruno Robbe
In 1995, Bruno Robbe took on the lithography workshop, founded by his grandfather Arthur Robbe in 1950, under the name Atelier Bruno Robbe. The workspaces have now been expanded and equipped with new technologies that complement the traditional printing presses. Éditions Bruno Robbe, created in 1999, combines traditional techniques such as lithography, linocut and intaglio printing, and modern techniques such as digital image processing (photolithography, etc.). The workshop specializes in the design of original prints by contemporary artists, in a kind of Laboratory of research and creation; where each work is conceived, drawn and realized in the same place. The production is focused mainly on the original print in limited edition, and around the artist’s book (book-object, portfolio, etc.).
