About the juror: James Rubin (PhD Harvard) is one of the world’s foremost specialists in the history, theory and criticism of nineteenth century avant-garde European Art, especially that of France. He teaches courses at the doctoral, master’s, and undergraduate level at Stony Brook University. His interests are interdisciplinary, with special attention to cultural history, art and politics, and art and philosophy. He has taught at Harvard, Boston University, Princeton and the Cooper Union. He has published over sixty articles and essays on subjects ranging from the eighteenth century to the present. He has given over eighty public lectures in North America, Western and Eastern Europe, and Asia. He is the author of thirteen books, with two more forthcoming. They focus primarily on Courbet, Manet, Monet, as well as on Impressionism in general and have been translated into several languages. Most recently, he won a National Endowment for the Humanities Public Scholar Fellowship. He travels frequently, speaks fluent French, and lives in Manhattan, New York and Mittelbergheim, Alsace, France.

Crawford AletaJames Rubin’s call for work: In today’s society, cost-effectiveness, efficiency, deadlines, and other pressures often cause us to rush anxiously about. “Time is money” is an essential value. Visual art cannot literally embody the flow, the passage, or the pressures of time, as potentially can music, dance, literature and other time-based media. And yet the concept and a sense of time are often called forth by still art—whether it be a feeling of instantaneity, timelessness, or something in between. This exhibition seeks visual works that engage the notion of time on some level, whether relating to the concept, the experience, or the evocation of time.

Selection notes from our juror: I was amazed by the diversity of the submissions, and I tried to capture that in my choices. Some of the images contained direct references to time by including clocks or some obvious evocation of clocks. I chose a fair representation of these. Certain abstractions caught my eye for how they might evoke the sense of time also. For those, as well as for figural works, the choices became increasingly subjective and personal. There were references to aging, to the seasons, and to activities that require time in figural works. All of the categories ranged from subtle to the completely obvious. My selections therefore represent both judgments of quality and a sort of sociological sampling, while attempting also to be fair to all media.
