Slow Art Day, April 14, 2018
March 25, 2018
An international event encouraging people to look at art slowly. The Ateneum Art Museum invites people to spend time relaxing and enjoying art – art always has time for you. Admission is included in the museum entrance fee or with a Museum Card.
Enjoy a multi-sensory experience: Arja improvises on kanteles in the gallery 15, Stories of Finnish Art exhibition, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Look at works of art while enjoying improvised kantele music.
Take your time: The Ateneum has chosen six works from the Stories of Finnish Art exhibition, and has added seats next to them for quiet viewing. Choose a work and look at it for 5 to 10 minutes, slowly and in silence.
Share your experiences: A free-form discussion on experiencing art, whether through savouring it slowly or with the accompaniment of flowing kantele music, on the hour at 12:00, 13:00 and 14:00. Ateneum’s workshop space, second floor. In Finnish.
