Notes on William Wegman

by Maud Lavin

Artforum, Mar. 1975, v. 13, no. 7, pp. 44-47

This article follows the exhibition of William Wegman’s video work at the Museum of Modern Art, providing a broad survey of his career, including his movement from sculpture into video and other mediums. Writer Maud Lanvin finds him most successful when he centers on domesticity and humanizes conceptual art with his personal sense of humour.
