New readings: Lawrence Weiner and Postmodernism

If you did the Sam Gathercole reading for Week 4, do yourself a favor and earn extra-credit for it by posting a response.

As an optional reading, I have uploaded an essay I wrote on a recent installation by Lawrence Weiner in Rome, Quid pro Quo (it’s on the bottom of the post, entitled The Stones of Rome).

The readings for Week 5 are up. It is quite a load; please allow enough time. We will talk about them on Thursday.

There are a number of optional readings available on the 1970s: I recommend Irving Sandler, The Art World in the 1970s, and Kim Levin, The State of the Art.
