The aim of the Slow Art movement is to break with the often frenetic pace of modern life to simply enjoy works of art in a deliberate and unhurried fashion. Slow Art at the Modern invests in this pause with a 30-minute spotlight tour focusing on one work of art. Led by a Modern docent the third Friday of each month, Slow Art at the Modern begins at 5:30 pm.
Docent-led tours in American Sign Language are open to the public and do not require prior arrangements.
Docents are also available to conduct private tours in Spanish, French, German, Mandarin, and American Sign Language when reservations are made at least two weeks in advance.
We may no longer be able to lay claim to a new avant-garde or to sweeping historic art movements in this pluralistic environment, but we can adapt and advance our understanding of what art is and how it functions in relation to how we perceive and experience it.
