Highly regarded for its commitment to bringing bold, contemporary art to the southeast, on March 24 the
North Carolina Museum of Art will open a new exhibition which will showcase the many ways contemporary artists explore the idea of “time” in their work.
0 to 60: The Experience of Time through Contemporary Art features works by
Bill Viola, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Tara Donovan, and many more of the most important names in contemporary art, all of whom have used their work to represent, evoke, manipulate, and transform time. The collaborative, multimedia exhibition
is co-organized with the Penland School of Crafts, where several of the participating artists have been in residence in order to create new works for the exhibition. Additional new works are being built site-specifically
in the Museum’s 164-acre art park, one of many distinguishing features of the Museum’s Raleigh home.
A press release for the exhibition is below and available online
here. Please let me know if you’d be interested in receiving more information about the exhibition or in speaking with curator Linda Dougherty.
“0 to 60” Contemporary Art Exhibition Brings Together Modern Masterworks that Explore the Concept of Time
Featured Artists Include Bill Viola, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Tara Donovan, and Five North Carolinians
17 New Works Created for the Exhibition
Raleigh, N.C.– Beginning March 24, 2013, the North Carolina Museum
of Art (NCMA) will present 0 to 60: The Experience of Time through Contemporary Art, an exhibition looking at how contemporary artists blur the boundaries between art, craft, and design, and incorporate elements from science, engineering, robotics,
computer software, and gaming technology to explore the concept of time. The works in
0 to 60 fall into six categories: real time, virtual time, historical time, recorded time, manipulated time, and the passage of time, and each approaches the theme from a different perspective. The exhibition will feature 17 new works as well as four
pieces from the Museum’s robust contemporary art collection including two newly acquired works—on view for the first time—and Bill Viola’s iconic video, “The Quintet of Remembrance.”
0 to 60 was developed by NCMA Chief Curator Linda Dougherty in collaboration
with the Penland School of Crafts in North Carolina, where many of the featured artists have studied or taught, and where several of the newly commissioned works will be on view simultaneously to the NCMA’s presentation of the exhibition.
0 to 60 will be on view until August 11 and will feature works by 32 diverse and acclaimed artists who work in a wide range of mediums, including Walead Beshty, Jim Campbell, Paul Chan, Tara Donovan, John Gerrard, Tim Hawkinson, Felix Gonzalez-Torres,
Beth Lipman, Rafael Lozano-Hemmer, Jennifer Steinkamp, Do-Ho Suh, Vera Lutter, and Bill Viola.
“Our contemporary art collection is one of North Carolina’s cultural gems,” said Lawrence J. Wheeler, director of the North Carolina Museum of Art.
“We are committed to collecting and exhibiting contemporary art, and 0 to 60
offers a unique opportunity to do that by drawing on our ties to the Penland School—which has been an incubator to so many wonderful artists from our state—and the relationships we have with artists who are excited to create new work for our exhibition. As
North Carolina’s art museum, part of our mission is to make sure we introduce audiences to the evolving face of art, and by showcasing works by many of the brightest names in contemporary art and expanding on a theme that can be seen in work from around the
globe, we will be doing just that.”
