Waning light and dour reflections usher in November, the Thursday of the year — it is neither near enough the end to abandon resolutions nor yet time to celebrate the coming of the new. With whales beaching, bellies crammed with plastic, the atmosphere coming to broil, and bee colonies mysteriously failing, the time is ripe for a look at the scourges of the past and their consequences in our uncertain present and doomed future. James Graham and Katherine Hawthorne present new works on the passage of time in Let Us Compare Chronologies. Graham premieres Guilty Survivor, a piece about living as a gay man in San Francisco after the AIDS epidemic of the 1980s, confronting both the melancholy of lost lives and the nostalgia for a lost past of exuberant debauchery. Hawthorne presents Timepiece, a meditation on the order and disorder of time.
