Born 10 February 1942 Bronx New York, attended the New York public school system. The late fifties and early sixties were spent traveling throughout North America. The first presentation of the work was in mill valley California in 1960. Lawrence Weiner divides his time between his studio in New York City and his boat in Amsterdam.

He participates in public and private projects and exhibitions in both the new and old world maintaining that: "Art is the empirical fact of the relationships of objects to objects in relation to human beings & not dependent upon historical precedent for either use or legitimacy."
