Lawrence-weiner

An artist can say a cup of coffee is art, but he’s a damn fool if he says a cup of coffee isn’t a cup of coffee, just because it’s art.

A piece by Lawrence Weiner from the Steven Leiber Extra Art Archive. The reverse of the envelope reads, "This work of Lawrence Weiner is being lent to the receiver for one year with a means of presentation (two stencils, one in French, the other in English). This work, sent to the whole mailing list of the center, forms one of the Magasin’s exhibitions. It will be held between January 1 and December 31 1987 in seven thousand different places throughout the world.“ -ar
