Black & white and color illus. throughout. Unpaginated. 4to (293 x 231 mm.), pictorial softcover (spine a trifle rubbed), title on spine. Los Angeles: Otis Art Institute, 1977.
One of 1000 copies, scarce On Kawara exhibition catalogue for his first solo museum presentation in the United States. It opens with Lucy R. Lippard’s essay on Kawara’s practice “Just in Time: On Kawara.” Most of the catalogue reproduces parts of the artist’s journal, where he recorded the color, size, and title of each “Date Painting.” The journal entries are complemented by five street photographs by Jun Morinaga. Near the end of the catalogue there are images of seven days from the series I Read, in which Kawara preserved clippings from each day’s newspaper.
Near fine copy; some minor wear to the spine.
❧ On Kawara (Phaidon: 2002), p. 149.
