Power brokers of the Renaissance, the Medici family of Florence created numerous villas in the Tuscan countryside. These buildings revived the glories of the classical world and served as gathering for the great minds of the age. This lecture will focus on the twelve Medici villa immortalized in a cycle of paintings (c. 1600) by Giusto Utens. From the intimate house in Fiesole to the grand palace at Pratolino, each building is a time capsule of a lost age.

Explore the idea of time in contemporary art: how artists test it, tell it, stretch it and rewind it. It looks at the temporary in the notion of the contemporary, and ponders the time of forgetting; the time of waiting. The talk primarily addresses two contemporary art installations, Sarah Sze’s Time Keeper (2016) and William Kentridge’s The Refusal of Time (2012) to assess how the politics and histories of time shape these monumental artworks.
