Experience the vicissitudes and complexities of passing time in a range of works in sound, painting, animation, performance and film by eleven of our most exciting international contemporary artists.

The Over Time art project aims to enable eleven amazing contemporary artists to make ‘time pieces’ in a place that is about to change forever: the Greenwich foreshore. The project is curated by Anne Robinson, a visual artist and curator based at London Met University and Limehouse Arts Foundation. An exciting list of artists will be taking part working in sound, painting, animation, performance and film: Ella Finer, Rachel Gomme, Ian Thompson, Charlie Fox, Sarah Sparkes, Victoria Gray, Katharine Fry and Gavin Maughling, Jo David and Birgitta Hosea.

The space on the foreshore is particularly important to the project because of the richness of the layers of time visible there – the current rapidly changing landscape, the natural markers, the tides and the bend of the river and the industrial heritage and history, including the site where the first underwater telegraph cables were laid.

Come and watch the performances and durational works over the weekend of 13 and 14 September which will be followed by an exhibition at The Stephen Lawrence Gallery in the Old Royal Naval College, Greenwich, 18 September - 16 October.
