This is another time that WRO takes part in the Slow Art Day. This global initiative shows a qualitative rather than quantitative approach to visiting museums and galleries. In the Slow Art Day, its organizers encourage you to unhurriedly take a look at five selected works from a given collection or exhibition, and to freely talk about art.
On this day, at noon, WRO’d like to invite you to the WRO Atelier (Kuznicza 29a, 2nd floor) for a special event connected with the preview of a publication that we’ve been working on for some time. The “Widok 4. History of the video installation“ is the fourth in a series of multimedia publications on the theory, aesthetics and history of new media art. As part of the Slow Art Day, we’ll show five out of 25 video installation documentations described in the book, which will become the starting point for the discussion. We’ll also hand out first copies of the publication (if the circulation arrives on time). In addition to this, the participants of the Saturday event will also have the opportunity to peep at the micro-museum, which is being created at the WRO Atelier in connection with the upcoming 30th anniversary of the WRO concept.
