    • Slow.Look.Live. began as a way to reach out to people sheltering in various places due to COVID-19. Over the past five months, we’ve spoken with nearly two dozen creative minds across three continents about productivity (and the lack thereof), pivoting to respond to the global upheaval of the pandemic, and the increasing volume of conversations surrounding social justice and Black Lives Matter movements. We’ve meditated, danced, listened to music together, and heard directly from artists about their works in progress. We’ve even toured a compost heap to reflect on worms and cycles of life and death. In our last session of Slow.Look.Live., AAM Learning Director Rachel Ropeik and Assistant Curator Simone Krug reflect on the program and what they have learned from their collaboration.
