Joseph Kosuth
February 8–April 13, 2006
London

Sprüth Magers Lee is proud to present a long-awaited in-depth survey show of the works of Joseph Kosuth. The exhibition, which covers a forty-year history, includes many works never before seen in Great Britain. The exhibition begins with key works from the 1960’s through to new work done specifically for this show. The installation of the exhibition is itself a project by the artist. The work of Joseph Kosuth last seen in London was in the opening show of the Tate Modern in May 2000, with the work shown having been purchased by the museum in 1971. This particular work, ‘Clock –Once and Five’, 1965, was done when Kosuth was just 20 years old. He has had over three hundred one person exhibitions around the world since.

Joseph Kosuth is a key figure in the redefinition of the art object that took place during the 1960’s and 1970’s. Conceptual art, as it has been since called, brought Kosuth international acclaim as he is seen as one of its most major practitioners, contributing both the earliest works, its most well-known theoretical text, as well as organizing its first exhibitions. Joseph Kosuth’s work has had a major impact on the present practice of art. He was arguably the first to employ appropriation strategies, texts, photography, installations and the use of public media. Sprüth Magers Lee is delighted to present for the first time in London a selection of Joseph Kosuth’s work, from key early works of the 1960’s through four decades to his most recent works. This long over-due exhibition opens February 7th.
