LAWRENCE WEINER: THE GRACE OF A GESTURE

THE GRACE OF A GESTURE, an artwork by Lawrence Weiner, forms the centrepiece of an exhibition organised by the Written Art Foundation and presented on the ground floor of the Palazzo Bembo near the Rialto bridge. A component will be the installation of THE GRACE OF A GESTURE which will appear on five of Venice’s major sources of transportation, the vaporetti. It will transport the work through the Canal Grande, the Arsenale, the Giardini and beyond. The work will be shown in ten different languages ranging from Chinese to Japanese to Arabic to Hebrew. Included in the exhibition at Palazzo Bembo will be another four works by Weiner originally created for his exhibition DISPLACEMENT at the New York Dia Center for the Arts in 1991.
