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.

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.
