About the Author:
John Chamberlain (* 1927) is one of the great sculptors of our time. He changed sculpture when in the late 1950s he began using colored metal parts, formerly car parts, and assembled them to large volumes of delicate coloration and precarious balance. Though metal remained his preferred material throughout the years, he engaged with other materials such as Plexiglas, paper bags, or foam as well as other media such as film and photography.
Lawrence Weiner was born in 1942 in the Bronx, New York. Upon graduating from high school, he worked in a variety of jobs--on an oil tanker, on docks, and unloading railroad cars--and then traveled throughout North America before returning to New York, where he exhibited at the Seth Siegelaub Gallery in 1964 and 1965. Since the 1970s, wall installations consisting solely of words in a nondescript lettering have been a primary medium for Weiner. Solo exhibitions of his work have been mounted at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington, D.C., ICA London, Dia Center for the Arts in New York, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, among others. Weiner lives in New York and Amsterdam.
