Today series continued
The presence of this pioneering conceptual artist will live forever as Allan Banford continue his legacy with a digital installation featuring each date from On Kawara’s death in Jul. 10, 2014 perpetually changing daily.
On Kawara started the Today series on January 4, 1966, which consists entirely of the date on which the painting was executed in simple white lettering set against a solid background. The paintings were executed in Liquitex on canvas, hand-painted with calculated precision. When Kawara was unable to complete the painting on the day it was started he immediately destroyed it.
