Today Is Today Is Today Is Today : Event, 2012
Today Is Today Is Today Is Today is a series of giclée prints produced as a Fundraising Edition for the 2012 NY Art Book Fair. Relating materially to Ebner’s sculptural work, the individual words appear to be composed of shapes arranged out of cinder blocks. Together, the eight versions within the series of words will spell out the rather suggestive sentence “Today Has No Margins The Event Arrives/Flush With Its Edges.” Each print is sold individually.
The work of Shannon Ebner (b. 1971 in Englewood, New Jersey) utilizes the tools of photography in order to exert pressure on rhetoric and language. She critically examines the ways in which language is ambiguous and fails to represent what it intends to. Her work follows in the lineage of artists such as Robert Smithson, Bruce Nauman, and Ed Ruscha, whose work also deconstructed language in order to reveal its ideological underpinnings. Ebner has received solo exhibitions at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Miami, MoMA PS1 in New York, and the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles. Her work has also been included in numerous group exhibitions internationally, including the 2008 Whitney Biennial and the 2011 Venice Biennale.
