Slow Art Day 2013

A discussion-based tour with a difference

Slow Art Day is all about getting to know artworks better by simply taking the time to look – slowly. This year at the Gallery we have chosen works that span our diverse collection, each one made from very different materials. Moving from artwork to artwork, we will encounter five cultures and five completely different ways of making art – from Arnhem Land bark painting to 12th-century Korean porcelain to a 1960s assemblage made from found objects.

No prior knowledge or experience is necessary – just come along and immerse yourself in the art. We will take time to look quietly at each artwork, then casually discuss it in a small, friendly group.

Meet your hosts, Annabel and Josephine, at the information desk. We will spend two hours viewing the works, then head to the Gallery cafe for lunch together at 1pm (if you wish to stay; you’ll need to buy your own lunch).

This year’s artworks are:
