Influential conceptual artist Lawrence Weiner uses language as his medium, and this exhibition brings together a cycle of wall texts from the ARTIST ROOMS collection.
Lawrence Weiner's 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 have 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.
