Keeping Time, or Refusing It: Contemporary Art & the Politics of Time

Wed, 05/03/2017 - 3:49pm -- lwhite

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.  


This is the third lecture in the three-part series "What Is Contemporary Global Art?" Click Here for more information on the series.
