MARCH 2012

Online exhibition presented as part of Time-Lapse

Time-Lapse 18 February to 20 May 2012

In 1969, Seth Siegelaub, pioneering supporter of conceptual art, organized March 1969 a.k.a One Month, an exhibition that existed only in catalogue form. Siegelaub invited thirty-one artists to contribute a work; one for each day of the month. Time-Lapse curators Irene Hofmann and Janet Dees have conceived of a project that is an homage to Siegelaub’s ground-breaking “exhibition,” updated for today’s virtual, technological world. March 2012 will be hosted on the homepage of SITE’s website. Each day during March one work by a different artist will be featured. The participating artists are an international and intergenerational group currently working with conceptual, time-based and media-oriented practices.

Artists include:

Axle Contemporary, Daniel Bejar, Martin John Callanan, Beth Coleman + Howard Goldkrand, Ron Cooper, Matthew Cusick, Faith Denham, Brent Green, Hillerbrand + Magsamen, Jennie C. Jones, Tellervo Kalleinen + Oliver Kochta-Kalleinen, susan pui san lok, Conor McGarrigle,  Linda Montano, neuroTransmitter, Huong Ngo (in collaboration with George Monteleone and Or Zubalsky), Paul Notzold, Geof Oppenheimer, Ben Patterson, Dawit L. Petros, Adrian Piper, Liliana Porter, Postcommodity, Mark Tribe, Claudia X. Valdes, and Donald Woodman.
