A Collective Exhibit
April 7-17, 2017
Northern Av. 1, 2nd fl
An exhibition on taking the time to pay attention.
Slow down. Look. Listen. Observe. In HAYP 9.0: Downshift, we’re asking artists (and our audience) to slow down their pace of life, disrupt their routine, and conceive of time in ways other than something to be contained, divided, and efficiently filled. Instead of “time management” consider unproductive time, or rather, productive delay. We’re talking about tuning into our perceptive awareness and noticing the little things of the everyday: the sound, sight, smell, and touch that frame our lives. It’s about taking the time to pay attention, to immerse ourselves in a moment. Deceleration for heightened awareness.
Curated by Anna K. Gargarian and Hasmik Badoyan
