Description

Slow Art Day is hosting a webinar for the slow art community and other interested participants featuring special guest Arden Reed.

Dr. Reed is a professor of English and Art History at Pomona College. His latest book Slow Art: The Experience of Looking, Sacred Images to James Turrell (University of California Press, French translation Editions Hermann) is about attending to visual images in a culture of distraction, specifically extending the six to 10 seconds that Americans, on average, spend looking at individual works on museums walls and why that matters. Slow Art dwells with various media —photography, painting, sculpture, film, fiction, video, digital and performance art, tableaux vivants—from the present and the past. Taken together, these art forms shape a new and distinct aesthetic field. For viewers experienced or novice, Slow Art models ways to open out acts of looking and make them more meaningful.

Dr. Reed will discuss his new book (which will be published on the date of the webinar - June 13) and answer questions from participants.

After you have registered to attend, you will receive a confirmation email with info on how to call in to the webinar. If you do not receive an email, please contact maggie@slowartday.com for further informaiton.
