One persistent question of our pandemic present is: What is our collective relationship to time? Several of this month’s featured artists grapple with time in relation to ecosystems, climate change, and the nagging personal sense of an incessantly disoriented everyday life. Reflecting dynamic experimentations with creative forms, these exhibitions invite consideration of how living in a time of pandemic has changed our relationship to time, space, and value.
