Slow Art Walk with Lubnah Ansari
27 September 2022 | Part of Alserkal Lates
Slow art walks are aligned to ‘alternative ways of being’ and mindfulness - taking the time to slow down and reflect: don’t rush to unpack or understand.
Slow art walks are aligned to ‘alternative ways of being’ and mindfulness - taking the time to slow down and reflect: don’t rush to unpack or understand. The aim is to de-intimidate art by making it about material and feeling over meaning and to focus on a few works rather than a take-it-all-in approach. The tours can be organised around specific thematics; for example In 2021, they were organised around the themes of representation and moving.
Lubnah Ansari (she/they) dissects notions of the personal and political with fervent curiosity. Utilising their multidisciplinary skills and feminist ethnographic frameworks, the artist and researcher explores practices of love as resistance. The NYU Abu Dhabi graduate has immersed herself in the roles of both insider and outsider and her work urges you to tap into your compassion. She is part of The Assembly at Jameel Arts Centre and is a post-graduate research fellow at NYU Abu Dhabi.
The Slow Art Walk will start at A4 Space.
