For their first Slow Art Day, the Museo Universidad de Navarra, in the heart of Pamplona, Spain, invited participants to look slowly at three contemporary works for art:
- “Incendi” (1991), by Antoni Tàpies
- “Untitled” (1969), by Mark Rothko
- “El número y las aguas I” (1978), by Pablo Palazuelo
The museum offered free tickets, which sold out in a couple of days – slow looking is in demand around the world!
The team at the museum reported that participants were excited to look slowly, share their impressions, and see through each other’s eyes.
Importantly, the museum itself enjoyed hosting their first Slow Art Day and plans to participate again next year. We look forward to seeing what they come up with for 2024.
