Joseph Kosuth in conversation with Sean Kelly. Wednesday, October 21, 12pm EST. Details below
Don’t miss the last week to see Joseph Kosuth solo exhibition ‘Existential Time’, closing Saturday, October 24, 2020. Joseph Kosuth, one of the pioneers of Conceptual art and installation art, has initiated language-based works and appropriation strategies since the 1960s. His work has consistently explored the production and role of language and meaning within art. For this exhibition Joseph Kosuth has developed a series of installations that address the problem of time and existence, emphasizing the lack, limitations, and abundance of meaning that surrounds the experience of being in time, past and present. Kosuth’s presentation of three separate bodies of work: ‘Existential Time,’ ‘Illumination (Existential Time)’ and ‘Quoted Clocks,’ all from 2020, investigates time and existence through a variety of references from other writers. Kosuth’s reflection on time in this exhibition stems from both a personal and philosophical concern with finding meaning within the various contexts and narratives life provides. It is thus also an investigation into the process of making meaning in artistic practice.
