About Joseph Kosuth

Joseph Kosuth is a leading pioneer of the 1960s conceptual art movement that altered the trajectory of modern art. Freeing the form of art from its reliance on the purely visual, his introduction of language into site-specific installations opened up new channels through which to explore the relationship between ideas and their physical expression, with the result of augmenting our understanding of how meaning is constructed.

This event is presented in partnership with Anna Schwartz Gallery and Melbourne Festival.
