Remai Modern
Raqs Media Collective: Passwords for Time Travel
July 1-31, 2017
remaimodern.org

Remai Modern is very pleased to announce its newest web commission, Passwords for Time Travel, by Raqs Media Collective.

Passwords for Time Travel consists of a suite of text and image videos proposing a set of terms that anticipate and rehearse conversations with the near and distant future. Combining the enigma of a spell with the precision of a dictionary entry, these unexpected lexical combinations are presented along with images that elaborate upon the multiple meanings of the texts.

In association with its pre-launch programs, Remai Modern has been inviting artists to realize original projects exclusively for online viewing. On the first day of every month, a new work appears on Remai Modern’s homepage. The web commissions are curated by Gregory Burke, Executive Director & CEO, and Sandra Guimarães, Director of Programs & Chief Curator at Remai Modern.

Previous commissions by Ryan Gander, Tammi Campbell, Tanya Lukin Linklater, Thomas Hirschhorn, Taysir Batniji, Pedro Barateiro, Kara Uzelman, Rosa Barba, Amanda Beech, Ellen Moffat, Duane Linklater, and Lynne Marsh remain accessible in the online archive.

About Raqs Media Collective
The Raqs Media Collective was founded in 1992 by Jeebesh Bagchi, Monica Narula and Shuddhabrata Sengupta. They have been variously described as artists, media practitioners, curators, researchers, editors and catalysts of cultural processes. Their work, which has been exhibited widely in major international spaces, locates them in the intersections of contemporary art, historical enquiry, philosophical speculation, research and theory. The Raqs members are based in New Delhi, India, and remain closely involved with the Sarai program at the Centre for the Study of Developing Societies, an initiative they co-founded in 2000.

About Remai Modern
Remai Modern is a new museum of modern and contemporary art coming to life in Saskatoon, a growing city on the vast Canadian Prairies. Scheduled to open October 21, 2017, Remai Modern aims to be a vibrant, imaginative and prescient museum committed to affirming the powerful role that art and artists play in questioning, interpreting and defining the modern era. The building, by eminent Canadian architects KPMB, overlooks the South Saskatchewan River in downtown Saskatoon. Remai Modern is home to the world’s foremost collection of Picasso linocut prints and aspires to be a leading centre for contemporary Indigenous art programming.

Remai Modern is made possible thanks to contributions from the Government of Canada, the Province of Saskatchewan, the City of Saskatoon, and many private and corporate donors. We are also grateful for program support from SaskCulture, the Saskatchewan Arts Board, SaskTel, Canadian Heritage, and the Canada Council for the Arts.
