"OUT OF SIGHT" is a 2-D graphic text-based structure by American artist Lawrence Weiner. Based upon the concept of a hopscotch grid and designed to be installed in public spaces, "OUT OF SIGHT" is a participatory flexible artwork, conceived to be exhibited in multiple languages. One of the central figures of Conceptual Art, Lawrence Weiner has engaged in a decades-long exploration of the form and content of language through sculptural installations. In "OUT OF SIGHT," Weiner’s work takes on an immersive and interactive dimension, inviting visitors to engage with words through movement. While the same structure will be installed in cities and art institutions around the globe, each version will be uniquely activated by its local community, a singular embodiment of the intersection between art and audience. "OUT OF SIGHT" defies traditional notions of art as something to be viewed at a distance. Visitors are invited to walk, dance, and gather on top of it, exploring its messages and challenges through direct physical and mental connection. The piece functions as a thought-provoking site for performance, interaction, engagement, reflection, and expression. Its phrases, prompts, questions, and provocations provide a framework to embark upon a personal journey of self-discovery and the realization of both individual potential and collective support. "OUT OF SIGHT" is organized by Larry Warsh. The Pittsburgh presentation is coordinated by Danielle Linzer, The Warhol's curator of education and interpretation.
