The Time is Now is an online group art exhibition curated by Carpenters Workshop Gallery. Atelier Van Lieshout’s works speak to the necessity or “time” for change, symbolizing hope for a revolution of consciousness and the awakening of more mindful beings.
When the future feels uncertain and we are forced to question the preconditions of life as we know it, we have to remain in the present—the only reality we know to be true is that the Time Is Now. Let’s check the contemporary art pieces that will be present at this virtual modern design exhibition:
Time is money. Time is fleeting. Time is precious. Time heals. Time is of the essence. Time is an illusion. We make time. We take time. We spend time. We race against time. We fight time. We try to control it – speeding it up, slowing it down. It’s just a matter of time.stated by Carpenters Workshop Gallery
Perhaps if there is one lesson to be learned at this moment, it is that we must surrender to the here and now. With the entire world seemingly forced into a pause, we cannot help but reevaluate how we look at the time, and what it means to us as individuals and society. Carpenters Workshop Gallery gathered a few great modern artists that are in the mouth of the world.
Certain modern design works address time’s ability to create structure and set parameters, exploring its role as a marker of the past, present, and future. In a literal sense, life’s milestones are measured by hours and minutes past midnight or noon, days, months, seasons, or years. Clocks and timepieces play an important role in creating this order, but can also tell a story about the lived experiences they track.
