[Lawrence Weiner] Progetto Genazzano 1983

Genazzano, Italy: np, 1983. Screenprint on vinyl. 12 x 37 in. Two 1 in. diameter circles cut at left edge for stringing as a flag. Very good with some wrinkling and lines from folding. Item #6100

An original Lawrence Weiner artwork printed on clear vinyl.

The work, cut into the shape of a banner with holes for stringing to a flagpole, accompanied his contribution to the 1983 group show Progetto Genazzano, an exhibition curated by Rudi Fuchs in an abandoned castle in the town of Genazzano, about an hour outside Rome.

The only documentation we could locate of this piece is a photograph in MACBA’s archive of Weiner showing an unidentified woman holding three copies, either backed by white paper or printed directly onto white vinyl.
