The concept of time has been discussed by philosophers throughout the ages. What is its nature? How does one depict it? Artists, especially, have struggled with representing the ephemeral thing that is time–from On Kawara’s never-ending series of dated one-day paintings, to Janine Antoni’s infinitely massive and barely gnawed-at hunks of chocolate and lard, to Hiroshi Sugimoto’s long-exposure photographs of movie theaters, to Iiigo Manglano-Ovalle’s sped-up video of human motion in Mies van der Rohe’s New National Gallery in Berlin. Tempo will feature encyclopedic texts explaining ideas and terms related to time, and a full-color thematic plate section will include multi-media work by artists as diverse as Francis Als, Mathew Barney, Vija Clemins, Douglas Gordon, Roni Horn, Guillermo Kuitca, Glenn Ligon, Gabriel Orozco, Paul Pfeiffer, Kim Sooja, Fatimah Tuggar, Andriana Varejao, Erwin Wurm, and Andrea Zittel. Published to accompany the first exhibition to be held at MoMA QNS, The Museum of Modern Art’s temporary space in Queens.
