ESSAY:
Using reduced material means, the works of On Kawara’s Today series are products of a mindful communion of time and space within the realm of one individual’s experience, all the while sharing in a universal collective consciousness. Minimalist and cerebral, the Today paintings are journalistic impulses expressed through a codified methodical process, all following the same format: three alphabetical letters and six Arabic numerals arranged in a sequence that describe the painting’s date of creation stencilled in white synthetic paint in the centre of a monochrome canvas, changing only slightly in colour, size, and syntax. On backgrounds of the artist’s own hand mixed colour – in a limited palette of red, blue or, most commonly, a deep grey, the Today paintings can be grouped in pairs, week or decade long sequences, or simply exist as stand-alone moments authenticated by their associated paperwork. Jan. 18, 1998, 1998 was the first date painting Kawara completed in that year, as the No. 1 inscribed on the reverse of the artist’s label indicates, painted on a Sunday (also included in the subtitle of the painting) in New York City, where the artist maintained a home.

Unusual in the context of Kawara’s wider oeuvre, the Today series used the traditional medium of painting. Kawara was dedicated to this medium’s specific qualities at a time when the relevance of painting was under philosophical and material siege, resulting in paintings that were all two-dimensional and rectilinear, painted with accumulative layers of paint (in the manner of Japanese lacquer but creating a matte surface). Kawara’s meditative, repetitive process minimised the trace of his hand, confining his artistic intervention to the choice of date, typeface, article and speed of production – if the painting was not completed by midnight, it was destroyed. The syntax of each date was determined by the language of the country the peripatetic artist was visiting at the time of painting; if the country did not use alpha-numerical script, Kawara used Esperanto. While his New York Conceptualist peers ascribed to a philosophy of painting that was dissociated from any external referent, existing solely in and of itself, the numbers and letters of Kawara’s dates were not mere symbols, but always retained their semantic value.

To store his ever-growing collection of Today paintings, Kawara custom-made individual cardboard boxes which were lined with a copy of the day’s newspaper and neatly labelled on the front with a typewritten label. While the clipping provides a geo-political and social context for each date, the paintings were not intended solely as a memorialisation of these dates. The clipping serves instead as an indexical authentication of the artist’s inhabitation of that specific moment and place in time.1 Kawara’s practice is anchored in an existential meditation on presentness. Robert Storr, writing of an example of the Today series exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art, suggested a humanist motive to Kawara’s practice, ‘to remind us how time’s passage simultaneously isolates individuals in their own reality and binds them to a collective reality’.2
