Tempus Peregrinari: A Time-Travel Exhibition

Curated by Enrique Fernández Cervantes

Reception: Sat. May 6 (5-7 PM)


The subject of time travel has held the attention of people from all walks of life for centuries.  It is easy to see why this topic has been examined considerably by those in the fields of physics and philosophy and by people in general. Artists are not immune to the allure of the idea of traveling through time and that has resulted in the creation of riveting films, literature, and other forms of performing and visual arts that investigate the fascinating possibilities of transporting oneself from one point in time to another.

The Tempus Peregrini show will feature local, regional, and national artists whose work explores various forms of imagined time travel.  The exhibition will include artwork that uses serious or playful imagery that depicts movement through time and space that are inspired by science, the imagination, or both.  Science fiction, time machines, wormholes, teletransporters, Tipler cylinders, bridges through space, or other invented time-travel devices that exist in the artist’s imagination will serve as inspiration for the exhibition.

Although most of the pieces will portray representations of physical transference through time, some of the works will also explore spiritual or philosophical ideas about returning to the past or leaping into the future.
