See the local premieres of short films from New York City’s 2014 and 2013 Dance On Camera festivals, including “Homegoings: A Dance” featuring dancers from the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company. They will be performing an original piece by Janet Wong with music by Daniel Roumain (Director Christine Turner, 2013, USA, 5 minutes) inspired by both the award-winning documentary “Homegoings” which explores the African-American way of death and “Rules of the Game,” a narrative dance film where trust between four male factory workers dissolves under the unremitting surveillance of the management (Directors/Choreographers: Jeff & Rick Kuperman, USA/Canada, 2013, 8:15 min.).

The idea of “slow art” has its origins in the “slow food” movement centered on the enjoyment and appreciation of food that began in Italy in the late 1980s. The aim of the slow art movement is to break from the frenetic pace of modern life to simply enjoy works of art in a deliberate and unhurried fashion. Led by a Modern docent the third Friday of each month, Slow Art at the Modern features a 30-minute tour beginning at 5:30 pm that focuses on one work of art.
