TIME ZONES: Recent Film and Video Exhibition/2004 TATE MODERN, UK


    Time Zones: Recent Film and Video

    Curated by Jessica Morgan, Curator, Tate Modern and Gregor Muir, Curator of Contemporary Art, Tate.

    Excerpt from the Exhibition Catalogue's Foreword:

    "Perhaps the most radical effect of the introduction of new technologies is the manner in which our perception of time is both altered and made apparent in material form. Time-based media can simultaneously reflect new visual, philosophical, and poetical approaches to time, and play an integral role in the process of changing our perception and understanding of the spatial and temporal. TIME ZONES proposes a reconsideration of the representation and role of time in recent video and film, reflecting the continued spatial and temporal differences that co-exist globally. The ten artists included are represented by works that reassert the importance of duration and observation for artist and the viewer alike.
    This exhibition, which constitutes Tate Modern first to concentrate on moving image, was conceived and developed by Jessica Morgan and Gregor Muir. Their insightful attention informs both the selection of works and the accompanying catalogue..." Vicente Todoli, Director, Tate Modern
