Artists Who Make Instructions for Others to Make Their Art

Lawrence Weiner

This is piece is one of Lawrence Weiner’s Statements, entitled “Two minutes of spray paint directly upon the floor from a standard aerosol spray can, 1968.” It’s two minutes of spray paint directly upon the floor from a standard aerosol spray can. Also, there’s someone else doing it on the right. Very nice. Although, Lawrence Weiner doesn’t really care if or how you carry out the work physically. That’s the decision of the “receiver” of the art.
