In keeping with the c ommemorative spirit of an anniversary\, Simple Present\, Future Anterior explores ideas of temporality and the nature of memory. Featuring work by all fifteen gallery artists\, the exhibition takes its name from two ne w pieces by Ian Carr-Harris: a pair of handcrafted blackboards with these t itular grammatical tenses written on them in perfect cursive. These objects recall conventions of display in pedagogical systems of early childhood\, and also express a need to understand and define time.

Simple Present\, Future Anterior brings together n ew and previous works that illustrate and respond to the relationships betw een past\, present and future.  Works such as Arnaud Maggs' Scrapbook (2009) and Kevin Yates’ Suitcase (2006) build on memories and past experiences as catalysts for potential futures. Others\, such as Brian Gro ombridge’s 47 degrees 22 minutes 17 seconds N\, 8 degrees 32 minutes 37 seconds E (2004) and Althea Thauberger’s Anatomie Artistique (20 11) take a more investigational approach by challenging the linearity of ti me and highlighting its perplexities.
