“I know these things have their uses, and I use them-a truck, a computer, a modem-myself, but I fear their false urgency, their call to speed, to their insistence that travel is less important than arrival. I like walking because it is slow, and I suspect that the mind, like the feet, works at about three miles an hour. If this is so, then modern life is moving faster than the speed of thought or thoughtfulness,”
— from Wanderlust: a History of Walking by Rebecca Solnit.

Slowness is a group exhibition featuring artists whose work reflects and investigates time and our expectations of it.
In the current context, convenience of consumption is omnipresent. To those with sufficient means, most products and information is almost instantly available. Has the expectations of convenience that we have for products infiltrated our expectations for one another? Must we always be available too? Where is the space to reflect, to converse, to absorb, and to wander through spaces and ideas?

-curator: Christopher Thomas Ford
