Joseph Kosuth is one of the most celebrated pioneers of Conceptual art, using language and appropriation to highlight the importance of the idea as the basis for a work of art. Since the 1960s, his work has consistently explored the production and role of language and meaning within art.

In conjunction with the Hirshhorn Museum’s current installation of the permanent collection, What Absence is Made Of, which features his seminal work Titled (Art as Idea as Idea) [Idea] (1966) as one of the highlights of the exhibition, the Museum is thrilled to host Joseph Kosuth for the annual James T. Demetrion Lecture.

This annual program is made possible by the Friends of Jim and Barbara Demetrion Endowment Fund, established in 2001 to celebrate Jim Demetrion’s seventeen-year tenure as the Hirshhorn’s second director.

We encourage you to arrive early. Ring Auditorium seating is limited. Any open seats may be released to walk-up visitors 10 minutes before the program.
