Art About Time

"Time Frames Marking Time," a multi-media exhibition curated by Elisa Decker and Barbara Lubliner, features the work of 19 artists who engage time as a palpable presence.

New York, NY, June 03, 2014 --( Time Frames Marking Time is a multi-media exhibition featuring the work of 19 artists who engage time as a palpable presence. The show highlights major installation pieces along with exquisite individual works.

Each artwork tells its own story, bringing attention to the temporal nature of life and inviting contemplation and dialogue about our relationship to time.

Artist-curators Elisa Decker and Barbara Lubliner further the dialogue by presenting special events in tandem with the exhibition. Many avenues are explored – dance, an artist’s talk, and live drawing – in this exciting and thought-provoking three-week extravaganza.

Curators' Bios
Painting, dance, and photography are all integral parts of Elisa Decker's life. She studied painting at the Maryland Institute College of Art, and her photography evolved from documenting landscapes and portrait models. Decker sees the world through a painter's eyes, focusing on color, texture, movement, and ambiguity of scale. Her artwork has been exhibited nationally and internationally. She put together the landmark exhibition "The Male Nude: Women Regard Men" in 1986, and has been curating ever since. She has won many awards and residencies, including from the Camargo Foundation and the MacDowell Colony. She currently teaches drawing and painting at the City University of New York and writes reviews for Art in America.

Barbara Lubliner moves fluidly between performance art, works on paper and sculpture both large and small. Her art practice is a confluence of art and life, each twist and turn driven by the desire to use current life concerns as a springboard for her art. The Brooklyn Museum's online feminist art base includes Lubliner's artwork inspired by her experiences giving birth and mothering. In recent years Lubliner's public installations and studio work have involved re-purposing trash into playful art, shifting the focus from environmental blight to creative production. Curatorial projects include "Upcycled," artwork created out of plastic post-consumer waste; "Art & Alchemy," featuring artists who use found materials; "A Place At The Table," a feminist performance event at the Brooklyn Museum; "Break the Mold: Honoring Walt Zucker," and "Dog, Dog, Cat!" celebrating the bond humans share with all living creatures.
