Third Fridays, 5:30–6 pm
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.
This program will focus on works in the special exhibition México Inside Out: Themes in Art Since 1990, which presents some of the most important artists working in Mexico today and features a variety of media, including painting, sculpture, video, photography, collage, and drawing. For Crossing the Border: A Closer Look, distinguished artists from North Texas visit and discuss work in the exhibition with the class, leading participants in specially designed studio projects using mixed and new media.
