0 to 60: The Experience of Time through Contemporary Art

June 17, 2012–December 2, 2012
North Carolina Museum of Art
0 to 60: The Experience of Time through Contemporary Art, co-organized by the NCMA and Penland School of Crafts, highlights a current trend in contemporary art: exploring the intersection of time and art by artists who employ innovative and experimental techniques.

This collaborative, multimedia exhibition is on view simultaneously at both sites, featuring a major exhibition and outdoor installations at the NCMA and a series of artist residencies and installations at Penland, accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue that covers the projects at Penland and the NCMA. Focusing on the concept of time and its influence on art, the exhibition looks at how time is used as form, content, and material in art, and how art is used to represent, evoke, manipulate, or transform time.

Featuring artists who ignore the traditional boundaries among art, craft, and design, the exhibition presents 60 works of art by 32 international artists, including Walead Beshty, Paul Chan, Tara Donovan, Tim Hawkinson, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Lisa Hoke, Beth Lipman, Rafael Lozano-Hemmer, Jennifer Steinkamp, Do Ho Suh, Vera Lutter, Bill Viola, Stacy Lynn Waddell, and many others.

Organized by the North Carolina Museum of Art and Penland School of Crafts. Generous support provided by the Windgate Charitable Foundation and the Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. The presenting sponsor is Fenwick Foundation, and the supporting sponsors are JDavis Architects, PLLC, and Randy Shull and Hedy Fischer. Free first Fridays made possible by Duke Energy. This exhibition is also made possible, in part, by the North Carolina Department of Cultural Resources; the North Carolina Museum of Art Foundation, Inc.; and the William R. Kenan Jr. Endowment for Educational Exhibitions.
