- American artist Joseph Kosuth is one of the pioneers of conceptual art, bursting on to the New York art scene in the mid 1960s at the age of 20, with intellectually challenging works that spawned a generation of acolytes and imitators. He works with language, mainly in neon, and mines the worlds of philosophy, literature, science and popular culture to explore the nature of meaning and the essence of art. His most recent solo show, at Melbourne’s Anna Schwartz Gallery is A Short History of My Thought and includes works based on the writings of Samuel Beckett and Sigmund Freud, an illegible page from the notebooks of Charles Darwin and a mind map reflecting on the word “light”.
