We’re only just beginning to explore the aesthetic possibilities of time travel. Two artists at the forefront of that exploration, Skawennati and Antonio Serna, will present works that delve into their respective histories and possible futures on Thursday at TSA New York in Bushwick. As part of Serna’s ongoing solo exhibition, he invited Skawennati, a Mowhawk artist, to present a selection of episodes from her nine-part project TimeTraveller
In Serna’s own moving image series, The Same Sun/Calendar (2017), an unidentified narrator — presumably the artist — sorts through archival and found images, digital and historical maps, and various other materials as he explores both his own history as a Mexican-American, and the broad narrative arc of humanity. Vast in scope, spanning 65 million years ago to the 17th century, the series tells an individual history with universal resonances. Both artists will be on hand to discuss their videos and their interests in the possibilities of virtual archaeology, time travel, and more.
When: Thursday, February 8, 6:30–8 pm
Where: Tiger Strikes Asteroid New York (1329 Willoughby Avenue #2A, Bushwick, Brooklyn)
