Artist Rooms Lawrence Weiner

Artist Rooms Lawrence Weiner Image
Influential conceptual artist, Lawrence Weiner uses language as his medium. His text work takes many forms, but the core principle remains the same - his ideas should not be confined to the gallery but taken up by the viewer. Adopting this principle, The McManus has worked with the artist to present his texts in different forms. One cycle of wall texts will be presented in Scots - translated by distinguished author James Robertson. Texts will also be installed within Museum displays around the building - the text resonating alongside Dundee's rich collections of natural history, archaeology, world cultures, industrial machinery and the spectacular architecture of The McManus itself.

The exhibition at The McManus will bring together a cycle of wall texts from Artist Rooms with a later wall piece and a selection of posters, drawings, artist books and ephemera from the Tate and The University of Dundee.

Artist Rooms is a touring collection of over 1,600 works of modern and contemporary art. The collection is displayed in museums and galleries across the UK, and is jointly owned by the National Galleries of Scotland and Tate.

Admission free. Opening Times: Mon to Sat 10am-5pm and Sun 12.30-4.30pm.
