Description

Exploring Complex Global Issues through Slow Looking

Presented by: National Gallery of Art

In a world saturated with images, from the superficial to the horrific, how do we focus attention on what truly matters? This workshop will explore one of the most pressing issues of our time—mass migration—through the immersive video installation by Richard Mosse: Incoming (2014–2017). Participants will experience the power of slow looking in exploring works of art, ourselves, and our world. The workshop will model the Voice & Choice and Parts-Purposes-Perspectives thinking routines (tools designed to facilitate investigation of complex topics) and consider the role of artist as activist. The program will conclude with time for reflection and connections to classroom practice.
