March 2012
curated by Irene Hofmann and Janet Dees
SITE Santa Fe
Santa Fe, New Mexico
March 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 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-orientated practices. A cumulative archive of the project will be presented in SITE's galleries.

Listening takes effort
Diapason - Brooklyn, NY

The performance will begin sharply at 6:15pm.
