Lawrence Weiner at Lisson Gallery. 28 November 2012

Lisson Gallery is proud to present a programme of occasional free lunchtime talks, offering a unique opportunity to hear Lisson Gallery artists, other cultural figures and gallery staff discuss art and related topics. The seventeenth in the series will be a conversation between Lawrence Weiner and  Lisa Le Feuvre about works in Lawrence’s solo show at Lisson Gallery (28 November 2012 – 12 January 2013).

Each talk gives the opportunity to discover first-hand the thoughts, processes and insights behind the artists’ work. Each lecture is free but booking is essential as there are a limited number of places available.

I did not have that advantage of a middle-class perspective. Art was something else; art was the notations on the wall, or art was the messages left by other people. I grew up in a city where I had read the walls; I still read the walls. I love to put work of mine out on the walls and let people read it. Some will remember it and then somebody else comes along and puts something else over it. It becomes archaeology rather than history.”
– Lawrence Weiner
About the Artist
Born on 10 February, 1942 in the Bronx, New York, Weiner was one of the major conceptual artists to come out of the 1960s in America, starting with his Cratering Piece at the start of the decade. Followed by sculpture, video, film, books, sound art, sculpture, performance art, installation art and more, Weiner has been the recipient of awards such as the Guggenheim Fellowship in 1994, as well as the Skowhegan Medal for Painting/Conceptual Art in 1999. The creator of Statements (1968), considered by many to be a seminal conceptual artist book, Weiner’s work has been exhibited around the world, most notably at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles in 2007-8, which displayed a retrospective of his career to date, alongside the Whitney Museum of American Art.

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
