Episode notes

How long do you usually spend looking at art? In this episode we explore what happens when we allow ourselves time to really get to know an artwork. Hear a psychologist and former monk discuss how the act of looking slowly at objects affects the way we understand them. Tate volunteers and visitors also share their own slow looking experiences and offer some tips and techniques that you can try out on your next gallery visit. This podcast features Bumi Thomas, Nicole Mollett, Rebecca Chamberlain, Aidan Hart and Enrica Franca. The Art of Slow Looking is a Boom Shakalaka production for Tate, produced by Eliza Lomas.
