Whimsical and bold, Lawrence Weiner's sculpture STARS DONT STAND STILL IN THE SKY employs the bright colors of Pop art and Weiner's signature use of language and instructions. The blue arrow, red star, and yellow tags playfully depict a kind of navigational sign. "Stars dont stand still in the sky" and yet where they're going is left to interpretation: "wheresoever," "whensoever," or "howsoever."

Artspace is proud to be working with Lawrence Weiner on this exciting project, the first in a series of limited edition sculptural commissions with top contemporary artists.

Lawrence Weiner personalizes the artistic experience of each of his viewers. He believes that his job as the artist is to conceive an idea and possibly produce instructions, but it's the audience who finishes the construction. Starting off as a key artist in the conceptual art movement of the 1960s, he wrote this infamous "statement of intent," which dictates much of his work:

1. The artist may construct the piece.
2. The piece may be fabricated.
3. The piece need not be built.

Each being equal and consistent with the intent of the artist, the decision as to condition rests with the receiver upon the occasion of receivership.

Lawrence Weiner's impressive and extensive resume includes solo exhibitions at the Dia Center for the Arts, the Walker Art Center, the Tate Gallery, the Museo Tamayo Arte Contemporáneo in Mexico City, the Hishhorn Museum and Scupture Garden, a retrospective at the Whitney Museum of American Art, and many more.Read Less
