Associate Professor and Chair Tom McDonough will be contributing to the series “Duologues On Kawara” at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum:
In conjunction with On Kawara—Silence, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum will host a range of public programs. Conceived by exhibition curator Jeffrey Weiss, the discussion series Duologues On Kawara positions the artist within a global, interdisciplinary context. The dynamic pairing of talks are followed by framed conversations on specific aspects of Kawara’s work, encompassing diverse topics such as language, travel, politics, pictorial abstraction, and the theme of the “everyday.”
All events of the series Duologues On Kawara include a viewing of On Kawara—Silence and a wine reception in the Guggenheim rotunda.
Alfredo Jaar and Tom McDonough
April 28, 6:30pm
This conversation will focus on two themes that surface when considering the political context of Kawara’s practice: the post-Conceptual representation of world events such as war; and the Situationist model of socio-cultural critique concerning the “practice of everyday life.” Artist and activist Alfredo Jaar and writer and critic Tom McDonough discuss these themes in relation to their own projects.
