Town Time is a playful and contemplative participatory art project that invites visitors, to momentarily uncouple from the constant motion of measured time and to consider society’s need for us to be compliant in its precisely organised structures.

Bennett & McDermott are inviting visitors to Leeds Art Gallery to select an activity from a ‘menu’ of options to do with the artists for exactly six minutes, ten seconds, the amount of time that was ‘lost’ when Leeds switched from town time to GMT following the arrival of the railways in 1869.  Prior to this standardisation of time, each town or city was slightly out of step with other places, basing its time on the rising and setting of the sun.

The focus of Bennett & McDermott’s collaborative art practice is to produce contemporary art that is accessible, engaging, and promotes the values of generosity, community and creativity”.
