Congratulations to our colleagues at the Princeton University Art Museum, where the exhibition “Hanne Darboven’s Address — Place and Time” opens today. As the press release notes, the show “presents a selection of works that explore how space, time and communication were organized and experienced in 20th-century European culture. Using a variety of techniques for drawing, writing and arithmetical calculation, Darboven reconfigured elements derived from the Gregorian calendar, the postal system and personal correspondence, including picture postcards and handwritten letters.”
Work by Darboven (1941–2009) and Sol LeWitt (1928–2007) from Rare Books and Special Collections are included, with additional Darbovens on view in the Marquand Library in McCormick Hall and in the Department of German in East Pyne Hall.
A day of programming will celebrate the opening beginning at 1:30 on Friday, April 26. Poster and schedule: http://german.princeton.edu/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/hanne-darbovens-address-event-flyer.pdf.
