A Matter of Time
Feb 17 – Jun 3, 2024
Crawford Art Gallery
Cork, Republic of Ireland

A Matter of Time considers temporality within a broad spectrum focusing on the human experience. Time is part of how we think about the world and our existence. It is present in the most common and sometimes mundane of human activities and in the more significant and profound. Time can be wasteful, enduring, precious and elusive and can be measured through the seconds passing on a clock or by the growth spurt of a teenager. Yet, time is also a central characteristic of power, control, capitalism, morality and belief.

Displayed over two floors, with the work of 25 artists and 60 works, the exhibition alludes to and includes themes of climate change, nationhood, post-colonialism, appropriation, memory, health, urbanism, meditation, re-emergence, hope, and legacy.

An extensive Learn & Explore programme of artists’ conversations, tours, and workshops will bring some of the key themes in the exhibition to the fore.

Artists: Darren Almond, Kevin Atherton, Sara Baume, Cecily Brennan, Ursula Burke, Elaine Byrne, Gary Coyle, Dorothy Cross, Jamie Cross, Mollie Douthit, Amanda Dunsmore, Joy Gerrard, Rula Halawani, Rebecca Horn, Austin Ivers, Nick Miller, Brian O’Doherty, Kathy Prendergast, Gail Ritchie, Patrick Scott, Naomi Sex, Yinka Shonibare, Nedko Solakov, Phillip Toledano and Daphne Wright.

    Evergreen Brick Works
    Toronto, Canada

    How do you listen? What do you hear? Nestled in the Don River ravines amidst urban trails and the Don Valley Parkway, Dastgāh is a sound sculpture that asks visitors to open their ears and listen differently. Created by the brother and sister duo Mani Mazinani and Sanaz Mazinani, the instrument takes its title from the Farsi term “dastgāh,” and can be literally translated as a “hand” (dast) and “gāh” (way) or “set of directions,” a modal system that serves as the foundation for composition and improvisation in Iranian music.

    Anarene is a book that was born from an eight-year photographic project made by Mikel Bastida in the United States.

  • ICON – O – STASYS
    May 31 – Nov 3, 2024
    Stasys Museum
    Panevėžys, Lithuania

    On this day… Stasys arrives back at his home village, Lepšiai… It all happens in May 2024… That’s when the Stasys Museum opens up to the public, a museum titled after him. This was never predicted – the future from there, a little village, in the house within a disorderly wooden structure, run down with dripping roofs, filled with bellowing, roaring farm animals… No fairy tales could be heard there… But just one hour’s walk away from Lepšiai, the white rectangular building stands proudly in the city centre (more…)
