At once critical and tongue-and-ch eek\, the title for this exhibition was topically born out of a discussion on a recent article in the New York Times\, “The ‘Busy’ Trap.”  Off the bat \, the article promises that “you’re not too busy to read this article.” Th e absurd meta-ness of being “too busy to read an article about being busy” got us thinking about the litany of other things that we don’t think we hav e time for.  We found ourselves uttering—nay\, screaming this phrase just a bout everywhere\, to whomever would (theoretically) listen—from fellow queu e-ers at Duane Reade to the hordes at the flickering timetable on the L tra in platform.

Our culture has become one o f impatience\, marked by brevity and abbreviations. A 120-word tweet can se em onerous. The art world is especially vulnerable to this pressurized fate \; leisurely gallery-hopping on a Saturday is now dismissed in favor of spe nding the afternoon catching up on a episode of GIRLS. Whatever happened to “taking in a show\,” or taking in...anything\, for that matter?  Recently reinstalled in New York\, Christian Marclay’s (time)piece de resistance\, T he Clock—an artwork\, that\, if viewed in its entirety\, would take you twe lve full hours—has never felt more timely.

\n

A collection of six new media artworks\, from video to digital sculpture\ , “I don’t have time for this sh&\;t!” implores you to slow down and rev el in one of life’s guiltiest pleasures: wasting time.
