Panel Discussion: Visibility of Time

Alicja Kwade, Taylor Perron, Jimena Canales
Friday, October 18, 2019 - 2:00pm to 3:30pm
MIT List Visual Arts Center

In conjunction with the exhibition Alicja Kwade: In Between Glances, this conversation explores the relationship between Alicja Kwade’s work and principles of science and history that relate to visualizing the concept of time. How do we perceive time; what are the theories of time; what is fabricated and what is illusion? Join artist Alijca Kwade, Jimena Canales, historian of the physical sciences, and Taylor Perron, Associate Professor of Earth, Atmospheric & Planetary Sciences at MIT in a discussion about visualizing time through both abstract and concrete terms. This discussion will reconsider what is actually real, and explore the possibilities of the imagination.
