A Synchronology is a group exhibition featuring contemporary art works in several mediums which deal with temporality, with the politics of time, with time’s passage and its recollection.

 

The exhibition presents works by internationally significant figures such as Robert Barry, Phil Collins, Ruth Ewan, Sharon Hayes, Simon Starling and Corin Sworn.

 

‌The artists included in A Synchronology have all featured in the exhibitions, projects and events curated by Glasgow-based organisation The Common Guild over the past decade.

 

‌The Hunterian has collaborated with The Common Guild to curate this exhibition, which marks The Common Guild’s 10th anniversary and is itself a reflection on how time is marked.
