A Matter of Time

Crowford Art Gallery, Cork (Ireland)

17.02 - 03.06.2024




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 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 gallery floors, and featuring over sixty works by twenty-five Irish and International artists, the exhibition alludes to and includes themes of nationhood, post-colonialism, appropriation, memory, health, urbanism, mediation, re-emergence, hope and legacy.

Crawford Art Gallery is a national cultural instiutition (Cork, Ireland) and is dedicated to contemporary and historic Irish and international visual art.
