Item description for Lawrence Weiner: The Society Architect by Gerd de Vries Peter Gordon...

Eminent New York-based artist Lawrence Weiner is renowned for his conceptual works dealing with issues in language and communication--and since the 1970s he has been using various recording media to transpose his films, books, and pictograms into audio works. His most recent effort in the aural direction--documented here--has been the conception of the stage design and libretto for the opera project The Society Architect Ponders the Golden Gate Bridge, a collaboration with New York composer Peter Gordon, a pioneer of minimalism and experimental jazz. The opera's plot is based on an actual court case: On the Golden Gate Bridge, an artist is hit by a car driven by a drunken architect. In the court case, however, a paradoxical twist occurs--the artist becomes the defendant under the examination of a reactionary judge. The result is an ordinary accident turned into a political debate about the artist's role and value in society.
