A Kingdom of Hours

23 JUN – 4 SEP 16

Preview: 22 June, 7-9pm

Gasworks presents the group exhibition A Kingdom of Hours, which explores how time produces social and sexual norms in everyday life. Focusing on how bodies assimilate or struggle against temporal regimes, the exhibition brings together artists whose works disrupt conventional understandings of time through strategies of repetition, pause, anachronism, deferral and delay. Artists include: Peggy Ahwesh (USA), Teresa Burga (Peru), William E Jones (USA) and Emilia Prieto(Costa Rica), among others.

The exhibition is curated by Robert Leckie (Curator, Gasworks) and Miguel A. Lopez (Chief Curator,TEOR/éTica), as part of an institutional collaboration between Gasworks and TEOR/éTica, where a revised version of the exhibition will be presented in October 2016.
