Slow Art Day

Slow Art Day










Saturday, April 10
2:00 PM – 3:00 PM

Join the Katonah Museum of Art to celebrate #SlowArtDay. Slow Art Day is a global event with a simple mission to help more people discover the joy of looking at and loving art. Observing a work slowly allows for discoveries and new perspectives. The goal is to focus on the art and the art of seeing. For this year's event, join a KMA docent for a virtual in-depth conversation about a selection of works in Still/Live.

 

Still/Live explores how contemporary artists working in photography, video, and new media are reimagining the genre of still life. Since ancient times, deceptively simple depictions of fruit, flowers, and every-day objects have disguised rich layers of symbolic association. The artists represented in Still/Live work from within the still life tradition, examining three themes—time, portraiture, and trompe l’oeil—with new technologies and from new perspectives.Registration required.
