Between the Ticks of the Watch

Between the Ticks of the Watch is the catalog to the exhibition of the same name at the Renaissance Society. The show featured artists Kevin Beasley, Peter Downsbrough, Goutam Ghosh, Falke Pisano, and Martha Wilson, who together presented a platform for considering doubt as both a state of mind and a pragmatic tool. Between the Ticks of the Watch traces how doubt can eat away at the foundation of understanding itself, calling into question the very possibility of knowledge—or at least demanding recognition of its limitations.
Featuring two new in-depth essays, a poetic text, and contributions by the artists featured in the exhibition, this catalog further presents doubt as a critical means for identifying new avenues of inquiry. The texts open space for the germination of novel forms and concepts, or questioning structures of power that have long been in place.
