Featuring work by Alex Chitty


Curated by Florence Derieux, the 2017 IN/SITU program explores the idea of time in various ways. Evoking terms such as immediacy, instantaneity, simultaneity, ubiquity, imminence, permanence, impermanence, chance, probability, memory, remembrance, these artists’ works question the temporal conditions, or episodes, that disturb our traditionally linear understanding of time and progress. In doing so, they allow us to experiment, evaluate, imagine, and reimagine our own relation to the real.
