Time After Time at John Hansard Gallery
28th Aug 2018
John Hansard Gallery, part of the University of Southampton, is pleased to present Time After Time, curated by Stephen Foster (Director 1987–2017), that reflects on the Gallery‘s history and programme.
The exhibition Time After Time examines the long-term value of what are often initially conceived as temporary or transient works, helping bridge the original John Hansard Gallery location with its new city centre home. This exhibition explores the nature of site-specificity in various ways, some of the works represented for Time After Time were made to be preserved, some have been adapted from earlier presentations, and some have been reimagined from their original showings.
Time After Time re-examines some key site-specific installations that were shown at the Gallery between 1992 and 2016 by artists Caroline Bergvall, Victor Burgin, Hamad Butt, John Latham, Charlotte Posenenske, alongside a new work by Walter van Rijn.
Time After Time runs from 8 September to 3 November.
