QUT Art Museum and their sister gallery, William Robinson Gallery, joined Slow Art Day for the first time in 2019, and according to their visitor survey, people left the museum and gallery wanting more.
Two of Queensland, Australia’s premier visual art institutions, QUT Art Museum and William Robinson Gallery asked participants to look slowly at five selected pieces in the exhibition Exchange value, which offered documentary photography by Gavin Watson.
Participants spent at least 10 minutes viewing and discussing each of the artworks with Sarah Barron, Public Programs Officer at QUT Art Museum.
Here’s what some of the participants said:
“Slow Art Day is such a great idea. Wonderful to take time to absorb and chat about the artworks.”
“Wonderful and insightful time. It opens up the art world to spend time with others discussing the works.”
“Loved it. Informative and reflected everyone’s ‘way of seeing’ the photographs.”
“Marvelous! Amazing! Beyond!“
“What a great event – want more!“
We look forward to seeing what more QUT Art Museum has in store for Slow Art Day 2020.
