Infinity Clock: Artworks on Time at Orange Door, 2019–20

September 19, 2019 – July 31, 2020

The most pressing question for a Digital Art collection is longevity. The truth is: no one knows the exact lifespan of any artwork, but we believe that artists creating with digital technology have something to say about the future of existence.

Each artwork in this exhibition contains an internal clock set by an artist. Some of the artworks die as you watch them, some are being created live, some time travel, and some pursue eternity. As technology advances so does our control of time.

Infinity Clock brings together vintage and contemporary digital, video, and electronic works from the Foundation’s collection to tell a story about the way artists seek truths beyond the confines of their age. 

Artists included: AES+F, Angela Bulloch, Nancy Burson, Daniel Canogar, John Gerrard, Matthew Angelo Harrison, Lynn Hershman Leeson, Jenny Holzer, Rafael Lozano-Hemmer, Christian Marclay, Nam June Paik, Thiaggo Rocha Pitta, Jennifer Steinkamp, United Visual Artists, Stephen Wilkes, Marina Zurkow, and an Algorist Drawing Salon.
