Chronos and Kairos: A show about time to Open at Hyde Gallery

MEMPHIS, Tenn. —Chronos and Kairos: A show about time will open at Memphis College of Art’s Hyde Gallery in the Nesin Graduate Center on Wednesday, July 10, continuing through July 31. The exhibition reception will be held from 6–9 p.m. on Friday, July 26 (Trolley Night).

The Hyde Gallery’s third and final exhibition of the summer, Chronos and Kairos is curated by MCA graduate student Justin Bowles. The group show spans media with printmaking, collage, drawing, painting, video, sculpture and installation. Featured artists include Justin Bowles, Amelia Briggs, Adam Higgins, Eric Huber, Jessica Marie Lund, Anna Roach and Matt Wening.

“The title comes from two ancient Greek words for time,” explains Bowles. “Chronos refers to quantitative, linear time and kairos signifies qualitative, nonlinear time. Each work investigates history, memories or theories of time.”

Hyde Gallery is open Wednesday–Saturday, noon to 5 p.m. On Trolley Nights, Hyde Gallery is also open 6–9 p.m. All of MCA’s galleries are open to the public, and admission is free.
