The Dia Art Foundation has released the details on artist Thomas Hirschhorn’s Gramsci Monument, a library, performance theatre and monument to the Italian thinker Antonio Gramsci, established in the Forrest Houses Projects in the Bronx. The piece will be the fourth and final work in a series of installations to Hirschhorn’s favorite thinkers, installed temporarily at locations around the world. Says Philippe Vergne, Director, Dia Art Foundation. “Gramsci Monument reinforces Dia’s commitment to off-site commissions, which is at the center of our mission. I am confident that through this project Dia will become a different, stronger institution — one that is even more engaged with the reality of art today.” Gramsci Monument will open July 1st.
