Slow Looking invites participants to create printed work inspired by and based in the spaces, people and communities that surround their lives. Through storytelling, daily site rituals, public art, and installation, we will be asking questions such as: What does it mean to make work in the public eye? How can our work affect or be affected by the spaces that surround us? What does the printed multiple tell us about our own histories?
From exploring the world around us with a viewfinder tool to monoprinted installations and from historic research about the cities we come from to screen printed banners. We will learn from maintenance art, printed political graphics, manifestos, mutual aid and cooperative work. And draw inspiration from artists including Emory Douglas, Corita Kent, The Detroit Printing Collective, Queer. Art Archive and Press Press, amongst others.
