Time Frames: Contemporary East Asian Photography
Frances Klapthor, associate curator for Asian art at The Baltimore Museum of Art

Curator Frances Klapthor will lecture on Time Frames: Contemporary East Asian Photography in the Meyerhoff Auditorium before leading ASG members on a tour of the exhibition in the gallery. Time Frames brings together 39 artworks by 33 artists born between 1929 and 1987 in four countries: Vietnam, China, Korea and Japan. Encompassing both hyperbolic and poetic images, the artists explore time in many ways: a time of day, a reflection about the world or shared cultural history, a past remembered or invented, an experience being lived or re-lived. A few address suspended time as periods of waiting or sleep. Some are real-time images. Others were created as a result of the length of time required for an artist to become immersed in the world of the photograph, to manipulate the subject or to capture the image. This exhibit will be on view at the BMA from November 4, 2018 through March 24, 2019.
