'Passing Time' exhibit to open March 27 at Peeler Center

Saturday, March 17, 2012

"Passing Time," a new exhibition of recent works by 14 international artists in a range of media on display at DePauw University, explores the multiple and converging meanings of the phrase "passing time."

Organized by guest curators Ginger Gregg Duggan and Judith Hoos Fox of c2 curatorsquared, the exhibition will be on view at DePauw's Richard E. Peeler Art Center from Tuesday, March 27 through Thursday, May 10.

The various meanings of the phrase "passing time" -- spending time, time to die -- are explored in the imagery of the works in the exhibition, which include video, photography, sculpture and works on paper.

Some artists turn to sport, some to music, some refer to nature and its rhythms to explore concepts of time -- short term, long term and terminating. Others partner with time itself in their making of art.

The artists, known and emerging, featured in the exhibition include Matthew Buckingham (United States), Jonathan Callan (United Kingdom), Luis Camnitzer (U.S.), Rineke Dijkstra (The Netherlands), Ken Fandell (U.S.), Shaun Gladwell (Australia), Felix Gonzalez-Torres (U.S.), Leandro Katz (Argentina), Katrin Korfmann (The Netherlands, Germany), Philipp Lachenmann (Germany), Stefana McClure (U.S.), Su-Mei Tse (Luxembourg, France), Siebren Versteeg (U.S.) and Bill Viola (U.S.).

The galleries at the Richard E. Peeler Art Center are located at 10 W. Hanna St., Greencastle, and are open Monday-Friday 10 a.m.-4 p.m.; Saturday 11 a.m.-5 p.m.; and Sunday 1-5 p.m.

The galleries are closed during university breaks and holidays.
