Artists on On Kawara


Members $12.76

Artists on On Kawara is the sixth volume in a series that builds upon Dia Art Foundation’s Artists on Artists lectures. The contributors to this book explore the practice of On Kawara from various points of entry: Alejandro Cesarco uses a self-reflexive approach to the ideas of artistic legacy, influence, and work; Nancy Davenport contends with innocence and trauma in two of Kawara’s most influential series; Renée Green weaves a poetic relationship between the work of Chantal Akerman and Kawara; Annette Lawrence provides a close reading of the Today series and her own journals, grappling with what it means to keep time; Scott Lyall considers the experience and contingency of time, differentiating between thinking with and speaking about a work of art; Dave McKenzie stages a diaristic correspondence with Kawara; Bettina Pousttchi reflects on duration in art and the history of time keeping; and Haim Steinbach plays with Beckettian abstraction, absurdity, and repetition.
