Mountain / Time (Alan Michelson), Aspen Art Museum, 2022.
Immerse yourself in the arts with this iconic, environmentally-inspired, museum-wide exhibition, Mountain / Time. Featuring moving image installations, a film screening series, and lineup of live performances, the contemporary collection will be open now until September 11, 2022 at the Aspen Art Museum and across the Roaring Fork Valley. Curated by Chrissie Iles, the Anne & Joel Ehrenkranz Curator at the Whitney Museum of American Art, along with Anisa Jackson and Simone Krug of the Aspen Art Museum, this exhibition is iconic.
Mountain / Time highlights the works of today’s most illustrious, inter-generational artists, including Kahlil Joseph, Arthur Jafa, Doug Aitken, Korakrit Arunanondchai, Anicka Yi, Ian Cheng, Kandis Williams, Tourmaline, Maia Ruth Lee, Clarissa Tossin, Mark Leckey and Alan Michelson. Inspired by the history and geography of the mountains and their ecological systems, these artists incorporated an environmnetal approach to art. Highlights of the exhibition include screenings of two of Thai filmmaker Apichatpong Weeraserthakul’s best-known films. Other special screenings will be displayed at the disused Smuggler Mine with programming and film screenings curated by Anisa Jackson of the Aspen Art Museum and scholar Michael B. Gillespie. Films will be presented both inside and outside the silver mine, along with programming and other activities. Gillespie’s screenings display films that challenge ideas of time, place, culture, and history, and express themes regarding the histories of extraction, racialization, and settler colonialism. 637 East Hyman Avenue
