On Kawara has Passed Away


We’re saddened to share the news that artist On Kawara has passed away. He began making his iconic “Date Paintings” in 1966. Each consists of a neatly hand-lettered canvas commemorating the day of its creation. The canvases are stored in specially made cardboard boxes containing pages from a local newspaper of the same day and from whatever place the artist happened to be that day.
