 Les Levine

born 1935, Dublin (IRL); attended art school in London and emigrated to Canada in 1958. Levine began working in New York in the early 1960s. According to Jack Burnham, «Levine’s strength as an artist is his ability to reify art as social context, that is, to create art out of whatever concerns art...Possibly since Duchamp no artist has challenged the infrastructure of artistic taste with as much rigor. The substance of Levine’s approach is essentially this: esthetic choices and categories are to an overwhelming extent defined by communication structures.»
