The Present is a Point Just Passed
14 June 2012 – 18 July 2012
In the lead up to an event where records will be broken and races won and lost in a fraction of a second, The Present is a Point Just Passed brings together art and artefacts that give a tangible presence to defined moments of time.
While some carefully reposition empirical data and look at incidents of historical significance, others use banal observations and puerile gestures to render forever noteworthy otherwise unremarkable passing moments.
The exhibition will include works by Martin John Callanan, Jan Dibbets, Lizzie Hughes and Jonty Semper alongside seismograms from the 1906 San Francisco Earthquake and images from the Lick Galaxy Catalogue.
