Onsite Gallery is pleased to participate in the annual international event, Slow Art Day.

What is Slow Art Day?
Slow Art Day is a global event with a simple mission: help more people discover for themselves the joy of looking at and loving art. One day each year, people all over the world visit local museums and galleries to look at art slowly. Participants look at five works of art for 10 minutes each and then meet together to talk about their experience. That’s it. Simple by design, the goal is to focus on the art and the art of seeing. For more info, visit Slow Art Day's website here.

What is happening at Onsite Gallery for Slow Art Day
Every hour on the hour (12:00 p.m., 1:00 p.m., 2:00 p.m., 3:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m.), one artwork in our current exhibition, The Sunshine Eaters, will be selected for focused viewing. Visitors will take 10 minutes to view the chosen artwork, which will be immediately followed by a group discussion led by one of our gallery staff members.

All are welcome to join the conversation!

 

The Sunshine Eaters
The Sunshine Eaters is an original multi-sensory exhibition that highlights how artists and designers look to the land and its plants, flowers and trees as a means to imagine and conjure hope in the face of local and global crises.

Featuring work by: Shary Boyle, Nick Cave, Robert Holmes, Jim Holyoak, Brian Jungen, Jessica Karuhanga, Alexandra Kehayoglou, Nina Leo and Moez Surani, Tony Matelli, Alanis Obomsawin, Ebony G. Patterson and Winnie Truong. Curated by Lisa Deanne Smith.

Exhibition runs January 10 to April 15, 2018.

Skawennati and Jason Edward Lewis write, make art, invent technologies, and run workshops that teach Indigenous youth how to make video games and machinima (among other things). Their individual and collaborative works have been distributed and celebrated online, in gallery exhibitions, public installations, and at media and Indigenous arts festivals across Canada and internationally. Critical to their creative practice is the idea that their work in the virtual world helps to enact positive change in the real world.  
Drawing from Peter’s current research into a critical history of data visualization and his previous journalistic work on product design, this talk makes connections between international standards of fit, measurement and time and their entanglement with Western industrialization and colonization. He’ll argue that in this history of measurement there are links between an aesthetic movement and racist scientific theories of the 19th and 20th century that will help us better understand the long shadow of Modernism in design education.
