Pratt Manhattan Gallery Explores Concept of Time in Contemporart Art With New Exhibition 0 to 60

Felix Gonzalez-Torres, "Untitled" (Portrait of Dad), 1991Pratt Manhattan Gallery presents 0 to 60: The Experience of Time through Contemporary Art, a multi-medium exhibition that explores time in its many iterations—real time, virtual time, historical time, recorded time, manipulated time, and more.

0 to 60 includes well-known artists such as Felix Gonzalez-Torres, the late Pratt alumnus whose interactive installation "Untitled" (Portrait of Dad) consists of 175 pounds of individually wrapped candies, and rising artists like David Chatt, whose Bedside Table is adorned with thousands of tiny seed beads. The exhibition also includes two installations uniquely tailored to Pratt Manhattan Gallery—Lisa Hoke’s expansive wall mosaic and Alison Collins’s Garden of Pleasure.

In addition to those mentioned above, other artists featured in the exhibition include Alison Collins, Dan Estabrook, Jeff Liao, Dan Bailey, Walead Beshty, Jana Brevick, Paul Chan, Sonya Clark, Caetano de Almeida, Rafael Lozano-Hemmer, Tehching Hsieh, Peter Matthews, and David Shapiro.
