A Matter of Time considers temporality within a broad spectrum focusing on the human experience. Time is part of how we think about the world and our existence. It is present in the most common and sometimes mundane of human activities and in the more significant and profound.   Time can be wasteful, enduring, precious and elusive and can be measured through the seconds passing on a clock or by the growth spurt of a teenager. Yet, time is also a central characteristic of power, control, capitalism, morality and belief.

Displayed over two floors, with the work of 25 artists and 60 works, the exhibition alludes to and includes themes of climate change, nationhood, post-colonialism, appropriation, memory, health, urbanism, meditation, re-emergence, hope, and legacy.

An extensive Learn & Explore programme of artists’ conversations, tours, and workshops will bring some of the key themes in the exhibition to the fore.
