Synopsis: On Kawara's recent exhibition, which circumnavigated the world in a clockwise direction over a three and a half-year period, played with the artist's preoccupation with time. The pieces chosen reflect a judicious choice, rather than a full retrospective, and consist of: an early drawing, Date Paintings', the One Million Years' books and a batch of telegrams devised by the artist himself. Apart from an introductory essay, the catalogue further only features reproductions of the artist's work, interspersed with reviews taken from newspapers.
