On Kawara—silence Programs

Conceived by exhibition curator Jeffrey Weiss, this series of paired talks positions On Kawara within an interdisciplinary world context. Themes inspired by each speaker’s engagement with Kawara’s work include everyday life, globalism, politics, language, travel, and pictorial abstraction. An exhibition viewing and reception follows each program.

Art Exhibition previously on at The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York, United States.
