Modern Matter’s eighteenth issue, It’s Time to Listen, put together in unprecedented and uncertain times, is concerned with time itself: the passage of it, the loss of it, the durational and experiential aspects of it, and its status as a thing that defines and encircles a new age. Across 160 pages, the issue explores time through interviews and features with leading artists, including Formafantasma’s Andrea Trimarchi and Simone Farresin, Tom Burr, Rebecca Ackroyd and Alexandre da Cunha, and Chris Burden, among others.
The accompanying LP to It’s Time to Listen is an audio-visual guide and tour of the issue. It is a translation of contemporary times. Side A introduces and illustrates the many conversations and essays that have unfolded during this temporal passage; Side B presents a curated selection of current shows, stilling them as illustrations of our contemporary world, alongside a sound performance and tribute to the late James Baldwin by Editor Olu Odukoya.
