Slow Art Day

Past event

It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see.

Henry David Thoreau

Be a part of the global event Slow Art Day, which takes place at hundreds of galleries and museums across the world on Saturday 6 April.

Look slowly and savour the artwork in Exchange value at QUT Art Museum's inaugural Slow Art Day, an event with the simple mission of helping people discover for themselves the joy of looking at and loving art.

Did you know most gallery visitors spend an average of 15 seconds or less looking at a work of art? You are invited to spend 5 – 10 minutes looking at the 5 selected artworks, or any that catch your attention. Then join gallery staff at 1pm for a relaxed and fun conversation, followed by light refreshments.

Visitors are encouraged to share their experiences with one another as well as on social media with #SlowArtDay2019 and #qutartmuseum.
