This exhibition presents a selection of works recently acquired for the Museum’s collection of contemporary art by some of today's most creative practitioners, among them Nina Canell, Jesse Darling, Petrit Halilaj, Lyle Ashton Harris, David Horwitz, Tala Madani, Roman Ondak, Seth Price, and Paloma Varga-Weisz. Exploring images of linkage and connection, as well as of interruption and detachment in both material and conceptual manifestations, the exhibition takes its title from The Distance of the Day (2013), a video work by David Horwitz presented on two iPhone screens showing the rising and setting of the sun as filmed by the artist and his mother simultaneously on two sides of the globe.

The exhibition is curated by Rita Kersting, Landeau Family Curator of Contemporary Art
