Slow. Look. Live. | Oscar Murillo
May 15, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Current Exhibiting Artist at the AAM
La Paila, Valle del Cauca, Colombia
AAM exhibiting artist Oscar Murillo delves into the idea of being grounded as he spends time in his small hometown in the mountains of Colombia, finding sites of slowness and solitude in the local rural landscape. What is it like to be a global artist residing in a single location? Murillo looks to his flight # drawing series, often drafted on airplanes, in hotels, and other liminal spaces. Murillo asks viewers to consider what makes them feel present and, ultimately, liberated in this particular moment, one in which we may pause, reboot, and reset.
Join a regional, national, and international group of participants on Fridays at 4 p.m. (MDT) with Rachel Ropeik, AAM Learning Director, on Instagram Live and Instagram Stories @AspenArtMuseum.
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.
