The SENSES OF TIME exhibition is co-curated by Karen E. Milbourne, curator at the NMAA, and Mary “Polly” Nooter Roberts, professor in the Department of World Arts and Cultures/Dance at UCLA. Roberts also works with African art at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), which partnered with the NMAA to produce this exhibition. The exhibit originally opened at LACMA in December 2015, and it will be on display for the public in 3 places once it opens at the Wellin Museum of Art at Hamilton College in Clinton, N.Y., in September.
Here’s what Milbourne has to say about the exhibit:
“Time is never neutral.Our hearts beat to biological time and continents drift to geological time...while we set our clocks to the precision of atomic time.Time’s movements are personal, cultural and political.
For the artists in this exhibition, time and time-based media become powerful devices for challenging stereotypes and addressing race, identity, government policies and faith, as well as layering riveting imagery.”
now that is poetic! BOOM
