Slow: Marking Time in Photography and Film
Museum of Contemporary Art - Jacksonville
By Suzanne Cohen
Curated by Marcelle Polednik, MOCA’s director, “Slow: Marking Time in Photography and Film” presents pieces by seven artists who work in a range of media, including photography, video and film, to explore the concept of time in today’s context, a world characterized by immediacy, change and the endless flow of information. Participating artists include Eve Sussman, Sam Taylor-Johnson, Kota Ezawa, Chris McCaw, Idris Khan, James Nares and David Claerbout.
“Slow” explores the concept of temporality from different points of view: Some works expand the temporal and formal frontiers of painting as an artistic medium, while others extend the limits of the immediate and instantaneous quality of photography to a more extensive universe that involves the passage of time and human beings’ perception of it. Temporal elements invite the viewer to stop, observe and involve himself in the processes of conceptualization and creation. Through April 7th, 2013.
