Aspen Art Museum


Slow.Look.Live. Lena Henke

Jul 10, 2020
10:00 AM
Artist Lena Henke will speak about her decision to relocate from New York to Berlin this past month, and the stark contrast in the cultural and behavioral response to the pandemic in each location. She will reflect on the ways that the pandemic has altered the landscape of the global art world, as travel slows and time takes on new meaning. The artist will also speak about the interconnectedness of the personal and the professional, and will show printouts of recent sculptural works that delve into introspective themes.

Initiated during this period of unprecedented physical distancing, Slow.Look.Live., offers an occasion to slow down and reflect with deeper intention on artistic processes and dialogues. Introducing a range of artists, curators, and thinkers, the new initiative focuses on how perception, creation, and community are being shaped by our various current geographical locations. Each week, we chart the relationships of our guests to the changing world, their immediate environments, and their studios. As we continually redefine how art can be made and experienced, Slow.Look.Live., will evolve indefinitely as a core program for Aspen Art Museum’s visitors and beyond.

Join a regional, national, and international group of participants on Fridays at 4 p.m. (MT) with Rachel Ropeik, AAM Learning Director, on Instagram Live and Instagram Stories @AspenArtMuseum.
