SLOW @ Museum of Contemporary Art Jacksonville

Very sadly, this exhibition does not open until next weekend (I'll be there today for a lecture I'm giving at the library across the street - go figure).  It looks to be a really nicely curated show though, so I'll be heading back to be sure.  Here are some details from the museum website:

"SLOW: Marking Time in Photography and Film focuses on artists and works that engage photography, film and video to explore questions of time and duration. A combination of still photographs, films, and video works, the exhibition explores multiple approaches to the topic: some works animate and extend the temporal boundaries of painting; others open the sealed confines of photography to the flow of time. In addition, photographic works capture an ever-expanding series of gestures and moments — ones that physically and conceptually transform the boundaries of the medium. In most cases, the temporal elements at play invite the viewer to slow down the process of looking and engage with the works over an expanded period of time in order to observe their unfolding."
