LAWRENCE WEINER "WILD BLUE YONDER", 1990
Yes "Wild Blue Yonder" has cut-outs!
Lawrence Weiner (b. 1942) is one of the most-distinctive American conceptual artists.
His philosophy and aesthetic developed concurrently to Sol LeWitt yet Weiner has focused far more on installation - typically in public spaces.
Exhibited at Leo Castelli during the 1970's, Weiner has been an institutional darling with major exhibitions at most of the world's top museums.
As a significant portion of his output is temporary installation, his multiples are sought-after and cherished by collectors.
This print is somewhat of a precursor to Weiner's similarly name video-installation from 2002 that is in the permanent collection of the MoMA. The title relates to the star system, as "Polaris" is another name for the North Star. (Are the cut-outs representing black holes or other astral mysteries?)
