Exhibition: The Solastalgic Archive and Deep Time Lab
Monday, November 28, 2022 - 10:00am to 4:00pm
The Solastalgic Archive holds materials that contextualize and give breadth to the experience of living and making in this time of accelerated change. The traveling archive encapsulates ephemera of memory, creation, forgetting, destruction, preciousness and transience from diverse founding artists and collaborators. It is an evolving, changing, temporal entity that will continue to grow as it is enriched by additions connected to each host venue. Contributors are asked to consider what they do that connects them to time.
Can we read time, smell it, taste it, touch it? Do we reinvent it, ask it questions, and look for answers?
Deep Time Lab is a participatory experiment in how we situate ourselves within time. The Lab merges the forms of exhibition, pedagogy, and archive. The Deep Time Lab provides resources and programs to promote new connections between past, present, and potential futures, by exploring time as a language, a measure, an art medium, a social context, a scientific principle, a spiritual space, and a cultural expression.
Over the course of the semester, the Museum invites students, community members, and visiting collaborators to foster interdisciplinary experimentation through Deep Time Lab programs complimenting the exhibition the Solastalgic Archive.
The Museum of Art is open Monday-Friday and select Saturdays. Check the website for current hours.
The exhibition is supported by the S. Melvin and Mary Jo Rines Art Exhibition Fund.Solastalgic Archive is a curatorial project of artist Nina Elder, and is organized by Dr. Natalie R. Marsh of artepodia.
