23 September–13 November 2011
Opening Friday 23 September 7-9pm

Ever Ephemeral: Remembering and Forgetting in the Archive explores the contradictions between ephemerality and permanence. The exhibition takes up archiving and historical representation, personal and collective history and their relations to chronology, and how art and artifact can give history form. The exhibition displays works and publications by Alejandro Cesarco, Danh Vo, James Benning, Julie Ault, Group Material, and twelve clocks collected by Felix Gonzalez-Torres.

Ever Ephemeral is a two-part exhibition on view at Signal and at the Inter Arts Center, curated by artist and writer Julie Ault, and is a part of Aults doctoral research in Fine and Performing Arts, Malmö Art Academy.

Please note that the exhibition at the Inter Arts Center opens on September 30th.
