NURTUREart’s Registry of Artists and Curators presented:
Slide Sessions: A Stitch in Time
Curated by Blair Murphy
Featuring artists: Brad Thiele, Molly Dilworth, Joseph Asher Hale, Kim Hoeckele, and Marisa Williamson
Slide Sessions is a new program which connects artists and curators from NURTUREart’s Registry for a one night event. The selection of artists is chosen by one of the registry curators to present their work to the public in a slide-share format. We held the second iteration of this program on October 20 at 7PM at Brooklyn Fireproof East, just around the corner from NURTUREart Gallery in Bushwick.
Time, experienced as a slow but inevitable forward movement, is a grand force that we experience on an intimate, corporeal scale. It creates a gulf between our current moment and the historical events that have shaped it, obscuring the connections that exist between them. It similarly challenges our ability to conceive of the future and the ways our current choices shape the coming epoch. A Stitch in Time will bring together artists whose work relates to time, whether at the scale of seconds or millennia, focusing on the ways they ask us to engage with the past or the future and examine how those other moments in time relate to the here and now.
Blair Murphy is a curator, writer, and cultural worker based in New York City.
