Time Frame

June 25–October 2, 2006

P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center presents Time Frame, a group exhibition exploring the compression, extension, and mirroring of time. Shuttling between the window and the mirror, the visible and the unseen, Time Frame explores the duration and meter of our double identity. Taking place in P.S.1's second floor Main Gallery, the show will include film, video, sculpture, and installation by ten artists. The exhibition is on view from June 25 through October 2, 2006.

Time Frame takes its departure from Robert Smithson's sculptural refractions of the late 1960s, and the artist is represented in the exhibition by the 16mm film Swamp (1971), made in collaboration with Nancy Holt, dealing with the limitations of perception. It continues its exploration via the expanded field of contemporary works by drawing on cinematic and video narratives. Time Frame is the New York premiere of Cory Arcangel's Colors (2005), a 33-day-long version of Dennis Hopper's 1988 film Colors. It is the U.S. premiere of Thiago Rocha Pitta's Rio de Janeiro X São Paulo, air trip with highway time or addressless love letter (2005), a video in which a 45-minute flight from Rio de Janeiro to São Paulo lasts three and a half hours on screen.

The artists featured in Time Frame are: Cory Arcangel (b. 1978, lives and works in Brooklyn), Felix Gonzalez-Torres (1957-96), Nancy Holt (b. 1938, lives and works in Galisteo, NM), Roni Horn (b. 1955, lives and works in New York), Paul Pfeiffer (b. 1966, lives and works in New York), John Pilson (b. 1968, lives and works in New York), Thiago Rocha Pitta (b. 1980, lives and works in Rio de Janeiro), Robert Smithson (1938-73), Hiroshi Sugimoto (b. 1948, lives and works in Tokyo and New York), and Andy Warhol (1928-87).
