Dia Art Foundation will present a new work by Thomas Hirschhorn, Timeline: Work in Public Space, from September 15 through November 3, 2012, at 541 West 22nd Street, the site of the future Dia:Chelsea project space. Timeline, a large-scale collage of images, written statements, and text excerpts, chronicles the artist’s interventions at urban and rural sites. It will be presented in anticipation of Hirschhorn’s Gramsci Monument, the fourth and final project of Hirschhorn's Monument series, that Dia will present in summer 2013 in the Bronx or at another location in New York City.
Thomas Hirschhorn was born in Bern, Switzerland, in 1957. He lives and works in Paris.
