Asma Kazmi at the Wattis Institute

Asma Kazmi's latest work is being exhibited by the Wattis Institute in San Francisco as part of the exhibition Deep-Time Construction.

Deep-Time Construction brings together artists who create images, text, and archival material to compose films that consider the fabrication of time: from the forging of coloniality, the riots to come, and the potential spaces in between.

Deep-time is the scientific term for the earth's existence,denoting its geological epoch. Playing with this notion of a settled time, a measurable time of building, the artists featured in this exhibition challenge the metric of form as it registers in the image. The six time-based works demonstrate the potential and possibility of durational experience—as movement, as distilled, and as configuration and reconfiguration of colonial time and measurement.

Asma is joined by artists Basel Abbas and Ruanne Abou-Rahme, Lida Abdul, Sky Hopinka, NIC Kay, and Amanda Russhell Wallace.

The exhibition opens this Thursday, May 31 from 6:30-8:30pm and runs until July 28, 2018.
