Health & Safety Violation #9 - Looped trip hazard by Ben Woodeson

Scribble to the count of five by Jill Townsley


Cass MA Curating students explore Textures of Time in new exhibition

The MA Curating the Contemporary, taught jointly by London Metropolitan University and the Whitechapel Gallery, is pleased to announce the exhibition Textures of Time, on display in the Frederick Parker Gallery from 8 April to 14 April 2011.

Taking the notion of temporality as its point of departure, this exhibition will feature works by Jeremy Evans, Jill Townsley, Ian Giles, Emily Speed, Ben Woodeson, Joby Williamson, Jörg Köppl and Yonatan Vinitsky, as well as live events and films.

The various artists presented in Textures of Time address concepts of cyclical time and repetition. Jill Townsley’s Scribble to the count of five consists of five videos, simultaneously showing the development of a drawing. Ben Woodeson will display the work Health & Safety Violation #9 - Looped trip hazard, a rubber tube coiled around itself on the gallery floor. Especially for Textures of Time, Jeremy Evans will produce a new version of If only you’d been here earlier, an on-going series of works engaging with exhibition spaces. Exploring the temporality of materials, Emily Speed constructs tenuous installations using cardboard and masking tape, creating works that will allude to the fleeting moment of the present.

Textures of Time will be accompanied by a parallel events programme of lectures, roundtable discussions and screenings. The MA Curating the Contemporary is a professional, two-year Master’s course, devised and taught jointly by London Metropolitan University and the Whitechapel Gallery.
