Ad Hoc Vox and The Kitchen are pleased to invite you to Time as Material, the third in a series of panel discussions organized by Ad Hoc Vox on the subject of time. The first covered broad scientific and cultural understandings of time, while the second addressed time in narrative — focusing on literature, theater, and cinema. For Time As Material, we will explore time as both a subject and variable in the conception, execution, presentation, reception and conservation of art.
Art, of all the disciplines, has been the most ontologically slippery. Once synonymous with certain material traditions, like painting, the 20th century expanded the field of art to include a host of practices which set about to systematically dematerialize the art object. Such practices have produced their own objects, many of which, like film or performance, are durational and subsequently are categorized and studied as “time-based.” Yet another effect of the expanded field of art has been that even materially-based practices are often understood — through frameworks as diverse as process, performativity, and sociality — as producing temporal objects. Time as Material will examine how these contexts for thinking through and about time inform artistic practice.
Time as Material will include Christine Frohnert, Valerie Hegarty, Marc Hundley, and Mika Rottenberg. Joe Winter will act as moderator.
Featuring Christine Frohnert, Valerie Hegarty, Marc Hundley, and Mika Rottenberg.
