Are We in Sync? brings together more than a dozen artists from six countries whose work explores alternative constructs and perceptions of time. These works expand the notion of time beyond a universal structure defined by dominant economic and technological forces. This artificial narrowing of time creates a palpable anxiety and alienation fueled by the urgency to maximize efficiency while minimizing imperfections. The works presented serve as a reminder that time is not limited to a singular rhythm and goals, but instead encompasses all aspects of life from the cosmological to the social.

Some of the works in the exhibition employ a range of techniques that dilate time through discrete encounters with sound and imagery, prompting questions about duration, pace, and synchronicity. Others harken back to an idea of time that is in tune with organic processes of decay, or question the ways in which time can be measured. Additionally, social interactions and collaborative happenings consider the ways time is shared among people through physical proximity and within virtual communities. Taken together, Are We in Sync? presents a matrix of temporal possibilities to remind us that there is no single way to embody time.
