OPENING THURSDAY 4 OCTOBER 5-7PM
Significant Velocities considers the importance of felt and experiential knowledge by exploring how art might enable new understandings of the immense and oftentimes intangible qualities of the geological. Five artists consider the scale and expansiveness of our planet’s velocities, timeframes, materialities and energies, and translate these abstractions into terms that can be felt. The resulting works provide keys that open up different way of understanding the realities of Earth's rotational speeds, mineral energies and deep time.
