Lawrence Weiner 1942 – 2021


03. December 2021
It is with great sadness that we have to acknowledge that Lawrence Weiner passed away yesterday. Only recently we had the pleasure of announcing the awarding of the 2022 Oskar-Kokoschka-Prize to this extraordinary artist. Lawrence Weiner, who had a strong link to the city of Vienna, will not be able to receive the award in person, contrary to his own and to our hopes. Lawrence Weiner will live on through his work. RIP
