Bones, objects and ideas are equally subjected to the passage of time. The exhibition Tongue Stones explores legacies past, present and future through a constellation of histories and imminent possibilities. The works in this exhibition include experiments in research, reenactment, distribution, sampling, circulation, documentation and reanimation. In each instant, preservation is contingent on present attention spans, as the act of remembering is bound to the act of imagining the future. Tongue Stones will be accompanied by a forthcoming, fully-illustrated publication featuring essays by Clara Halpern, Laura McLean-Ferris, and individual artist projects.
In our dynamic world, art reflects conditional reality, and design contributes to further development of global societies. At Parsons School of Design, rigorous practice and critical scholarship prepares students to become leading agents of commentary and change.
