On Kawara: Date Paintings in New York and 136 Other CitiesOn Kawara: Date Paintings in New York and 136 Other Cities

Published by Ludion.
Edited by Edgar D. Mitchell, Lei Yamabe, Lucas Zwirner, Tommy Simoens, Angela Choon.

The Japanese conceptual artist On Kawara (born 1933) has nurtured a fascination with counting and time for more than 40 years now, most famously through the ongoing execution of his famous “date paintings” of the Today series: a daily ritual to conclude only on the day of his death. The first painting in the series was executed in New York on January 4, 1966; since then, On Kawara has carried out the procedure at regular intervals in cities throughout the world, painting each day, month and year in a white sans-serif script against a monochrome background in the language conventions of the country he is in. When not displayed, each painting is stored in a box and accompanied by a local newspaper clipping of the day. Despite numerous solo exhibitions worldwide, Date Painting(s) in New York and 136 Other Cities is the first retrospective of the 45 years of On Kawara’s date paintings. Including over 180 date paintings, the book is divided into two parts: one that covers the complete series of paintings done in New York, and a second that focuses on the series of works done in different locales throughout the world. The result offers a unique insight into the role that place and a life of travel has played in a body of work that has been defined by time and chronology.

On Kawara: The 90S

Published by JRP|Ringier.
Edited by Pierre Huber. Essay by Thierry Davila.

Can you recall what you were doing on April 3, 1990? What about on July 17, 1996? October 23, 1998? In Date Paintings, time itself has become art--art that carries viewers back in time. These black and white paintings are pure realism, the existence of time put in painting, thus rendering the works--up to a certain point--both viewable and readable. The 11 paintings, made by Conceptual artist On Kawara over the course of a decade, allow viewers to complete their reading with personal associations, historical events or academic interpretations. The book, conceived with Kawara himself, is a decidedly different and intimate take on an artist's monograph. In it, Kawara has invented a simple and striking way to make art by taking his time and using the calendar to make a kind of non-individual art work.
