Senses of Time: Video and Film-based Works of Africa

This Week
Daily, Now - December 31, 2017
From: 10:00 AM to 5:30 PM

The notion of time is explored to fascinating effect in this new exhibit at the National Museum of African Art. Six African artists explore how time is both experienced and produced by the body across seven different videos. The power of the camera is shown through pacing, looping, layering and sequencing, altering time for both the viewer and the characters depicted within. Time seems like a simple enough concept to understand, but after experiencing this exhibit, your perception is sure to change.
