North Carolina Museum of Art opens 0 to 60. The Experience of Time through Contemporary Art

North Carolina Museum of Art, in partnership with Penland School of Crafts, presents 0 to 60: The Experience of Time through Contemporary Art an exhibition on view March 24, 2013–August 11, 2013, that highlights a current trend in contemporary art: exploring the intersection of time and art by artists who employ innovative and experimental techniques.

This collaborative, multimedia exhibition is on view simultaneously at both sites, featuring a major exhibition and outdoor installations at the NCMA and a series of artist residencies and installations at Penland, accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue that covers the projects at Penland and the NCMA. Focusing on the concept of time and its influence on art, the exhibition looks at how time is used as form, content, and material in art, and how art is used to represent, evoke, manipulate, or transform time. Featuring artists who ignore the traditional boundaries among art, craft, and design, the exhibition presents 60 works of art by 32 international artists, including Walead Beshty, Paul Chan, Tara Donovan, Tim Hawkinson, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Lisa Hoke, Beth Lipman, Rafael Lozano-Hemmer, Jennifer Steinkamp, Do Ho Suh, Vera Lutter, Bill Viola, Stacy Lynn Waddell, and many others.
