Saturday, September 15 - Saturday, November 3, 2012
Dia Art Foundation will present a new work by Thomas Hirschhorn, Timeline: Work in Public Space, from September 15 through November 3, 2012, at 541 West 22nd Street, the site of the future Dia:Chelsea project space. Timeline, a large-scale collage of images, written statements, and text excerpts, chronicles the artist’s interventions at urban and rural sites.
