The 1,500-square-foot space run by the nonprofit arts collective MASS is is a great example of the lo-fi but professional gallery style that makes Austin's Eastside gallery scene unique, as spaces intended for other, often more industrial, purposes are renovated into smart environments for artistic expression. MASS, in particular, is one of the more sharply curated venues, offering curious and innovative work by thoughtful artists and collaborators making inroads in the contemporary scene. MASS also has five studios and a shop.
Curator Hannah Spector asked each artist in this group show to create a work that depicts an alternate way of telling time – one that strays from a capitalist framework. Imagining time as distance, telling time through task, through objects that fall apart, through rhythms of the body, and so on in gloriously visual fashion.
