What is its nature? How does one depict it? Artists, especially, have struggled with representing the ephemeral thing that is time -- from On Kawaras never-ending series of dated one-day paintings, to Janine Antonis infinitely massive and barely gnawed-at hunks of chocolate and lard, to Hiroshi Sugimotos long-exposure photographs of movie theaters, to Inigo Manglano-Ovalles sped-up video of human motion in Mies van der Rohes New National Gallery in Berlin. Tempo will feature encyclopedic texts explaining ideas and terms related to time, and a full-color thematic plate section will include multi-media work by artists as diverse as Francis Alys, Mathew Barney, Vija Clemins, Douglas Gordon, Roni Horn, Guillermo Kuitca, Glenn Ligon, Gabriel Orozco, Paul Pfeiffer, Kim Sooja, Fatimah Tuggar, Andriana Varejao, Erwin Wurm, and Andrea Zittel.
