Reading of On Kawara’s One Million Years at Dia Beacon

DIA: Beacon  is  recruiting volunteers for the reading of On Kawara’s One Million Years.  As a part of the 10th Anniversary Celebration May 18 – 19, 2013, there will be a live reading of On Kawara‘s One Million Years on both days. This presentation, which speaks to the passage and marking of time, will commemorate the 10th Anniversary of Dia:Beacon. Kawara‘s One Million Years consist of a male and female reader alternating the reading of Past and Future dates in numerical order. At Dia:Beacon, all readings will be done in hour-long sessions from 11 am to 6 pm on Saturday and Sunday.

DIA would like to extend the opportunity at this time to students, patrons, staff and friends of Dia to participate in this unique work of art. To reserve a timeslot, please contact Kathleen Anderson at [email protected] or 845.440.0100.  Please feel free to share with friends and colleagues – and urge them to sign up for those Sundays slots!  The only requirement is that the readings must be done in English.
