Someone once said that writing about music is like dancing about architecture – meaning, we guess, that it’s mostly impossible and maybe pointless. Clearly we enjoy a challenge, as we expend thousands of words per week writing about music, food, art, and so on, but sometimes the maxim proves true. For instance, the massive exhibition taking over the Cornell Fine Arts Museum for its fall 2017 season. The connecting principle between all the work in this group show is time: “as scientific fact, as relative experience, as aesthetic archive.” We’ve been trying to wrap our heads around that, but talking about Time as Landscape feels like knitting about football or maybe trying to eat soup over the telephone. We can only recommend you go and experience it in person – we’ll be there, trying to crochet the weather.

Opens Friday, Sept. 29 | through Dec. 31 | Cornell Fall Arts Museum, Rollins College, 1000 Holt Ave., Winter Park | 407-646-2526 | cfam.rollins.edu | free
