Mountain / Time Comes to Aspen Art Museum

No contributor

Through September 11, the Aspen Art Museum presents “Mountain / Time,” an exhibition of moving images spanning the entire museum. Curated by Chrissie Iles with Anisa Jackson and Simone Krug, “Mountain / Time” brings together works from the Rosenkranz Collection and the Whitney Museum of American Art in an exploration of time, re-mapping, and migration relating to the Colorado mountains.

“Mountain / Time” is deeply connected to the Aspen environment, as the Rocky Mountains’ and Aspen tree root system’s immense age relates to the exhibit’s investigation of time. The show includes video installations from Kahlil Joseph, Anicka Yi, and Alan Michelson, filmed in locations spanning the globe.
