In response to themes in the work of Claire Healy & Sean Cordeiro, the MCA will become a portal into the exploration of time, travel and time-travel.
Join artists, academics and enthusiasts for pop-up talks and performances exploring time-based, ephemeral and temporary art; cult classic time-travel films; the space-time continuum; and the impact of travel on artists’ practice. Plus, each week, take part in writing postcards to your future self.
