Time After Time is curated by Stephen Foster (John Hansard Gallery's Director 1987–2017) and reflects on the Gallery‘s history and programme.

Since being founded in 1980, John Hansard Gallery was located on the University’s Highfield campus in a building that was originally designed to house a tidal model of the Solent basin. During this time, the Gallery was marked by a consistent and focused programme, an element of which explored the legacy of the early conceptual art movement and its influence on succeeding generations of artists. Embracing the Gallery’s unique position within the University, new commissions were often created through mutually beneficial collaborations between artists and academics from a wide variety of disciplines. In 2018, after 39-years on Highfield campus, John Hansard Gallery relocated to a new purpose-built city centre space in Southampton’s Guildhall Square.

Bridging both its previous and new city centre homes, Time After Time re-examines some key site-specific installations that were shown at the Gallery between 1992 and 2016 by artists Caroline Bergvall, Victor Burgin, Hamad Butt, John Latham, Charlotte Posenenske, alongside a new work by Walter van Rijn. By returning to these works, the impact of reimagining an original, temporary installation and the significance of its location are explored.

Time After Time has been made possible through the generous support of the Henry Moore Foundation.
