From Nothing to Nothing Is No Time At All
A-I-R SPACE: FEB 3 - MAR 11
OPENING RECEPTION: FEB 3 | 7 - 9 PM
Salt Lake City, UT - Utah Museum of Contemporary Art (UMOCA) is proud to present the exhibition From Nothing to Nothing Is No Time At All by Mary Rothlisberger in the A-I-R Space.
If creative practice is something to drape duration on, what shape is the landscape of conversation during a slow drive across rural America?
From human nature to geologic time, From Nothing to Nothing Is No Time At All deeply explores quietude, the real color of night, how stones can speak, and what we say to one another when we're just passing time.
It is for all the people that come to mind when you view something beautiful, the stories that evoke happiness and sadness, the miles measured between all of us at once, and getting to understand the ground that you stand on. What color is the dust that you kick off your shoes?
