The WAH Center (The Williamsburg Art & Historical Center) is pleased to present Today is the Tomorrow You Thought About Yesterday, a showcase of multimedia works that deal with time as a subject and medium. This exhibition focuses on the notion that the present time is shaped by our past experiences and ideas of the future. Situated in a stunning 19th Century National Historical Landmark building, the works on view create a dialogue with the past as well as interact with the viewer at a particular moment. The time is the essence of Today is the Tomorrow You Thought About Yesterday, which provides a site for contemplation about our existence in relation to the work and space. Spanish architect Enric Miralles aptly summarizes the overall concept of the show as looking at how “time becomes a precise a space where to think about a form.” The subtle expressions of time in these works invite the viewers to extend their observations beyond what is being presented.

This exhibition is curated by Nina Kong, Assistant Director of the WAH Center.
