Time Out of Mind | Early Hindsights of New Nashville
A video art work by that explores the psychology of change, nostalgia, and relational memory amid rapid change in Nashville using drones, archival film, and sound art. The work is created by Brian Siskind, Nashville Metro Archives’ 2019 Artist in Residence. It incorporates archival footage from Metro’s Audiovisual Heritage Center, come of which has not been seen in over half a century.
The opening event is August 3 from 6pm - 9pm at Fort Negley as part of the Wedgewood-Houston Art Crawl. Light snacks and drinks are provided. Guests are encouraged to freely come and go throughout the evening.
This year marks Metro Archives’ first Artist in Residence Program in partnership with Fort Negley and the Nashville Public Library. This unique project seeks to break down the walls between community and archives, to re-define the role of artist and archivist, and to bring archival collections beyond the walls of the archive and into our public spaces.
The piece will run in the Fort Negley Gallery through the month of August. This project is generously funded by the Nashville Public Library with support from the Nashville Library Foundation.
