The Gallatin Galleries is proud to present CPT: Time, History and Memory. Through the work of world-renowned artists, this show explores the private language embodied in time, history and memory. As elements of experience, both history and time are elusive; they seem at once concrete and ephemeral. Memory, too, whether personal or collective, can seem both real and intangible. But time, history and memory can become modes of communication as much as means of experience, a language of communion, understanding and unity. CPT: Time, History and Memory proposes a dialogue on the nature of this communication and its engagement with history and memory.
The show is made up of three groups of work: those that make a direct reference to time, in the form of clocks and similar objects; works that address a specific memory, whether personal or collective; and pieces that address a particular historical moment.
This show is being held in conjunction with Black History Month 2012.
