INSTITUTE OF CONTEMPORARY ART, UNIVERSITY OF PENNSYLVANIA

Colored People Time

Edited with text by Meg Onli, Amber Rose Johnson. Foreword by John McInerney. Text by Aria Dean, Eve L. Ewing, Michael Hanchard, et al.

Matthew Angelo Harrison's "Polygon Mesh of Batetela, Statue 30-55-1" (2019; original Sculpture purchased
circa 1930 from J. Noble White) is reproduced from 'Colored People Time.'

Artworks, essays and poetry explore the racial implications of capitalist temporalities

In 2019, the Institute of Contemporary Art at the University of Pennsylvania presented the experimental exhibition Colored People Time. Divided into three chapters—Mundane Futures, Quotidian Pasts, Banal Presents—it used the Black vernacular phrase "Colored People's Time" (CPT) to explore the ways that dominant notions of time have been used to control and condemn Black people. CPT names a political performance by Black people to evade and ridicule the enforcement of punctuality and productivity.

Alongside reproductions of historical objects from the Black Panther Party, Sutton E. Griggs, the National Institutes of Health/Getty Images, and the African Collection at the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology, Colored People Time includes reprints of seminal essays, newly commissioned writing and poetry from Huey Copeland, Eve Ewing, Michael Hanchard, Matthew Angelo Harrison, Amber Rose Johnson, Carolyn Lazard, Jessica Lynne, Tausif Noor, Meg Onli, Gregory Pardlo, M. NourbeSe Philip, Monique Scott, Martine Syms and Michelle M. Wright.Artists include: Aria Dean, Kevin Jerome Everson, Matthew Angelo Harrison, Carolyn Lazard, Dave McKenzie, Cameron Rowland, Sable Elyse Smith and Martine Syms.

'Colored People Time' is new from ICA Philadelphia

'Colored People Time' is new from ICA Philadelphia

Sable Elyse Smith's "Coloring Book 33" (2019) is reproduced from Colored People Time, the ICA Philadelphia's text-heavy, multifaceted exploration of the ways that dominant notions of time have been used to control and condemn Black people. This 50x60-inch work on paper is from a series that sources imagery from found coloring books meant to teach children how to interface with court systems. The accompanying text explains: "Woven into a series of connect-the-dots and maze games ('Can you help Pat to the metal detector?') is an implicit message about who does and doesn’t belong in a courtroom, presenting criminality as a foregone conclusion to children who receive such a book. Within these pages is the source for Smith’s "Coloring Book 33," a nearly blank page with the text 'Draw your own picture,' a line that reads as an uncanny invitation to exercise freedom within a document meant to foreclose access to it. Here, Smith’s intervention fills the space with evidence of her own hand. By combining child-like mark making with a text of refusal Smith effectively counteracts the sinister visual and textual language of everyday structures that feed into the carceral state." continue to blog
