Lawrence Weiner OSL Contemporary
In light of recent developments concerning the coronavirus (COVID-19), events, exhibitions and talks are subject to change. Please follow ArtNews for updates.
OSL contemporary is pleased to present the exhibition LONG AGO FAR AWAY, with new works by New York- based artist Lawrence Weiner. The show comprises of three sculptures and is Weiner’s second show at the gallery.
Aesthetically, Weiner’s work is defined by a graphic take on typography and shape. He creates work with his own typeface – Margaret Seaworthy Gothic – which he made by hand, aimed to resist the weight of history that many other fonts carry. His now iconic take on lettering – though instantly recognisable – is surprisingly varied, appearing in boxes, diagonally, in colours from sky blue and acid red, as an outline and notably in a global breadth of languages. The new work he has created for OSL Contemporary forms a single thing, but can also be broken into three parts.
