Our Story

Time is a city-based, non-profit organization that aims to promote art and foster community bonding.

Our team discovers and curates various art projects for city inhabitants to explore the art spaces in a city in creative ways.

Through our activities, we hope to build a third sense of public: the kind of public that comes into being through a shared moment of experiencing art.

Our Mission

Time is based in Montreal and Shanghai, with a focus on the overlap between time-space and artistic reality. 


Through exhibition tours, studio visits, participatory curatorial projects and petite art projects, we hope to build an art-based community and explore new affective relational formations.

"Time" is an umbrella term covering a multitude of possibilities: fossils and monuments, the mechanical clock, instantaneity and eternity.
