Spiral Time

at Smack Mellon

Smack Mellon is pleased to announce the 2024 Emerging Artist Summer Group Exhibition, guest curated by Alex Santana. Spiral Time explores radical ecologies of resistance that challenge the temporal pressures imposed by capitalism. Decentering speed and efficiency, the artists included in the exhibition borrow from slow, careful, and intentional practices like seedkeeping, intergenerational storytelling, and synchronic experimentation. Working across sculpture, installation, video, and other media, the artists engage broadly with the dire concerns of the climate catastrophe while invoking cyclical ancestral systems and future possibilities for horizontal relationships to the Earth. Ultimately, the resonance of their distinct voices provides a framework for reciprocity, undermining the dominant systems of capitalist logic that impose notions of progress as singular, linear, and unidirectional. Spiral Time is, after all, about diffraction and dispersion in the face of methodical, exhausting, and often violent order.
