The Art of Slow Looking at the NGA

Do you ever feel stressed about not knowing the artists and artworks when you visit a gallery? Do you ever feel that you do not belong to the gallery space? Join us for a slow looking session at the National Gallery of Australia (NGA) and learn that you are not alone.

Inspired by a trend called slow looking, highlighted by Shari Tishman in her book Slow Looking: The Art and Practice of Learning Through Observation (2017), we would love to share with you the tricks of how to enjoy art and utilise the artworks to recharge your own creativity.

During the hour at the NGA, we will enjoy a facilitated slow looking experience, and have some free time to explore and test out slow looking on our own.

This tour is FREE for all ANU students and includes chartered return bus travel between ANU and the Gallery.

This session will be facilitated by Zora Pang, a creative producer and ANU graduate:

"I studied Art History & Curatorial Studies at the Australian National University (ANU). My passion lies in delivering engaging art through collaborative projects, workshops, and experience of different senses, and my mission is to give the power of creativity back to people who feel distant by art. I was an intern at the National Gallery of Australia (NGA) and Monash University Museum of Art (MUMA). As a developing creative producer, I was part of You Are Here Canberra Cahoots 2020 program. My recent projects include Wǒ-In-Process (Wǒ[我]:, I, Me) (2020), #Water_Voices (on-going), #NonProjectCBR (on-going) and Eros (working title, on-going)."
