About the work
SMS # 4: On Kawara, 100 Year Old Calendar, 1968 by On Kawara. Ink on oil cloth. 2000-piece edition. Calendar from 1901 to 2000, highlighting 1968, all on just one sheet of oil cloth. The SMS Portfolios were a collaboration between William Copley & Dmitri Petrov which they published through their Letter Edged in Black Press, working with some of the most important artists of the twentieth century. The aim was to produce a new form of art journal that would bypass traditional institutions to distribute the artist's work directly to its audience instead.
About the artist
On Kawara For over four decades, On Kawara has created paintings, drawings, books, and recordings that examine chronological time and its function as a measure of human existence. The artist began making his now signature date paintings (known as the Today series) on 4 January 1966 in New York City, and continues to make them in different parts of the world. His practice is characterised by its meditative approach to concepts of time, space, and consciousness. (born Japan 1933 and lives in New York City)
