You Can Only Think About Something if You Think of Something Else was originally a line from the movie In Praise of Love (Éloge de l’amour), in which the director Jean-Luc Godard voiced the conflicting moment of our thinking, through the mouth of his character: One cannot but take reference from some other familiar objects when one is approaching the meaning of a specific one. The title can be taken as a metaphor for the unique situation of Times Museum. Being a concept realized as part of the 2nd Guangzhou Triennial, Times Museum was established in a residential neighbourhood as an art institution, and has actively engaged the local residents with something alternative to their quotidian reality.
