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, How to Breathe Forever, 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!

 

How to Breathe Forever underlines the importance and interconnectedness of air, animals, land, plants and water. The belief that everything in the universe has a place and deserves equal respect is the core of this exhibition and positions our relations with others  ̶including the ‘natural’ world  ̶as active and reciprocal. The exhibition invites you to consider an expanded personhood that attentively collaborates and exchanges with living things.

 

Onsite Gallery is the flagship professional gallery of OCAD U and an experimental curatorial platform for art, design and new media. Visit our website for upcoming public events. The gallery is located at 199 Richmond St. W, Toronto, ON, M5V 0H4. Telephone: 416-977-6000, ext. 265. Opening hours are: Wednesdays from noon to 8 p.m.; Thursdays and Fridays from noon to 7 p.m.; Saturdays and Sundays from noon to 5 p.m. Free admission.
