“Future Tense / May 9, 2010 / Post-dated On Kawara / Self-Conscious Auction Item”
LIquitex on canvas, vinyl lettering
12″ x 16″

(text included on back of work): A self-conscious artwork, this piece declares the day after the actual date in which it will be auctioned (Southern Exposure’s “Space Odyssey” event, May 8, 2010). Visually referencing a well-known conceptual artist’s tactic of marking time, this post-dated item promises a tomorrow—then quickly becomes history.
