THE PIECE NEED NOT BE BUILT 
In 1968 Lawrence Weiner, one of the key figures of Conceptual art, formulated his famous Declaration of Intent:

1. The artist may construct the piece.
2. The piece may be fabricated.
3. The piece need not be built.

Each being equal and consistent with the intent of the artist the decision as to condition rests with the receiver upon the occasion of receivership.

On 2 February 2008 Lawrence Weiner discussed his work with art historian and critic John Slyce at Tate Modern in London to coincide with his recent retrospective AS FAR AS THE EYE CAN SEE at the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York and his 2008 exhibition at the Lisson Gallery in London which ran until March. The event is archived as a webcast at tate.org.

Perhaps not too much to interest the casual FAC follower only familiar with his record covers and posters for Factory Records but for those keen to find out more about Weiner or who simply have never seen him talk before this is a great opportunity.
