All the Time in the World
Featuring works by Gail Wight and Mary Tsiongas
Curated by Arif Khan
On exhibit through August 4
What is our place in the world and the imprint we intend to leave on it? Join artists Tsiongas and Wight as they transform science into contemporary art that provokes a question of place, time and being.
“Have the time of your life,” “losing track of time,” “on the company’s time,” and “ahead of their time,” are all common phrases that note various notions of time and how one perceives it. All The Time in the World documents and explores creative ways of expressing or marking time from the specific to the poetic. Featuring artwork by Gail Wight (Associate Professor Art & Art History, Stanford University) and Mary Tsiongas (Associate Professor Electronic Media, University of New Mexico), the exhibit presents many ways we, in fact, measure and perceive time, and in so doing enriches our understanding of them both. Through video, installation, and mixed media the two artists explore the subjective nature of time and show how an understanding of science can influence the practice of contemporary art.
