We are happy to welcome the Waikato Museum in Hamilton, New Zealand to Slow Art Day 2018.
One of the things we love the most about Slow Art Day is that it brings together hundreds of museums and thousands of people from institutions like the Tate Modern (they are a longtime participant) in London to museums like the Waikato in New Zealand.
On the banks of the Waikato River in the heart of Hamilton’s south-end cultural precinct, the Waikato features 13 galleries and more than 25 new exhibitions and 100 public events annually.
On April 14, people all over the world – now including Hamilton, New Zealand – will be coming together to learn how to slow down and discover how to really see art.
We think this simple concept is important – especially in this age of multi-tasking where the emphasis is placed on speed.
We started Slow Art Day in 2009 to challenge the blindness that this screen-based world is creating.
